Welcome to The Aycliffe Fell Walking Club Website
Aycliffe Fell Walking Club is based in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham (near Darlington in the North East of England) and is open to everyone interested in fell walking or rambling. It caters for walkers of all abilities and ages. It became Aycliffe Fell Walking Club in 2011.
Each outing has a variety of walks of different lengths and difficulty ratings and transport is by comfortable coach that picks up in Darlington, Newton Aycliffe and Bishop Auckland.
The pickup times and routes are always published in each notification post, which can be accessed from this website.
I am sad to report that Lenny Nunn passed away on 20 January, 2024 and our condolences & deepest sympathy go to his wife, Jean. Lenny was a well liked member who had been with the club right from the start in 1977, thus being a founding member. He worked at BIP and then Hydro as did most of the early members of the club, and for many years he never missed a walk. He made a massive contribution to the club’s operation (especially raising money through the annual Xmas draw), always offering help and advice and will be fondly remembered for his sense of humour, boundless energy and enthusiasm for walking. He hasn’t been on walks recently, in part because he was helping to care for his mother in-law, who is over 100 years old, but just a few days ago ago he told me he hadn’t had a drink in two years and would soon be returning to walk with the club and he was saving himself to have a drink with us again. The picture below shows him enjoying a pint in Whitby following an AFWC walk along the Yorkshire Coast in 2004.
I will have to move your website to another server. Once moved, there will be a short period where image uploads may not work. This is due to the fact that the domain is being transferred to an entirely new server and that change needs to propagate throughout the internet. In most cases, this takes a few hours, but it can take up to 24 hours.
Please allow time for this to happen.
