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.

Hi, for circulation a quick update on the club weekend away.
This years event is a scaled down version to previous ones, as far as I’m aware there are 5 staying at the Orchard caravan park and two at Grinton Youth Hostel, no information on anybody staying in B&B’s.
No barbecue on Friday evening, but a get together at a pub in Reeth. Saturday is walk day after which a meal has been arranged for 7pm at the Bridge inn Grinton for 12 people under the club name.
Important – Pre-ordering of food is preferable from the attached menu. Please send menu choices to firstname.lastname@example.org
For those feeling up for it a Sunday morning walk can be arranged.
Any further questions or late bookings please let me know.
I had planned and mapped out 2 walks from Kepwick but in view of the narrowness of the roads in that area I have decided to omit them leaving 3 long walks from Osmotherley and 2 shorter walks from the A170.
This will hopefully help to avoid any unnecessary delays. So, other than the visit to Osmotherley, the coach will stick to A19 and A170.
Yes!! AFWC can now announce that the 2022 weekend away will be in Reeth on the weekend beginning on Friday 1st till Sunday 3rd July. Further details to follow but contact Eddy and Geoff if you know how. Otherwise please enquire via the online form for now.
