Havac Walkers Walking Club

We are a U.K walking club based in Haverhill, Suffolk. We are a member of The British Walking Federation (BWF).

We organise seven winter walks, offering a distance of 10k or 20k. These are held on the first Sunday during the winter, beginning in October. Start time is 9.00 a.m. for those walkers wishing to complete the 20k. Anyone who wants to walk the short route with a member of Havac should arrive at the start by 9:30. Walkers happy to walk the short route on their own can arrive any time between  9.00 and 10:30.

We also organise seven summer walks, which are held on a Monday evening. These are 10k , and are held every other Monday beginning in late May. Start time is 6:00 p.m.

A written route description is supplied. The cost per walk per person is 50p. Walks are within a radius of 25 miles of Haverhill.

You can walk with a group, or on your own. If you are new to walking and would prefer to walk with a club member, contact the walk organiser or a committee member, and this can be arranged.

There is no better way to see the countryside, and to keep healthy.

The club also has 15 “All year round” Permanent Trails in the Haverhill area, which are self-guided. A route description can be downloaded from this website, and they can be walked at any time.
