Risk - all walkers walk at their own risk and neither the IWCouncil nor their appointed agents and guides can take responsibility for personal injury or accident.

Walk Leaders - the volunteer walk leaders reserve the right to refuse participation to any walker if they are not suitably attired or in the leaders opinion feel that they would be unsuitable to undertake the walk.

Timings - of all the walks are approximate and will depend on group abilities and size

Dogs - are allowed on the walks, but it is the owners responsibility to control of them on leads and to clean up after them.

Car Parks - please ensure that your car park ticket is sufficient should the walk run over time.
