All walks offered by TreadGower are intrinsically safe, but regardless of terrain (largely moor, beach, coastal path) accidents do happen, and good preparation and communication can set the right parameters for a safe an enjoyable walk. Your walk is protected by my own personal liability insurance, a copy of which I will show you at the outset of the walk, along with First Aid Certification.
Children are welcome but need to be accompanied by an adult if under 18.If you have any health matters which could affect your walk, let me know. If you want to know more detail about the terrain or length of the walk, ask me before you book and i will give you all the information you need.

THE KEY TO AN ENJOYABLE WALK - GOOD GEAR AND FORWARD PLANNING!
Mud Need not be Maddening !
Reliable, trustworthy gear is essential for enjoying the outdoors safely and comfortably, so please do not turn up in your Dunlop Green Flash or your G-Star Jeans. If you do, the walk will last about 30 seconds back to your car and you'll still be paying for my time. There are no exceptions to the gear list below so please humour me: - Waterproof and Breathable Gore-Tex or Equivalent Hard Shell Jacket - Breathable base layer that wicks away moisture - sweat that doesn't dry quickly will leed to cold wet underlayers! - Leather or goretex boots, minimum 3-Season standard. Recommend Brasher, Berghaus, Solomon, Meindl. - Walking Trousers that again dry quickly. Lots available at a reasonable cost - Peter Storm etc - Good Thick socks, wool i prefer. Avoid heavily stitched seams as they can cause nasty blisters - 25-35 litre daypack to carry your flask, sarnies, mobile phone (turned off please), wallet, gloves, last nights curry.... - 1.5 - 2l Water bladder or Equivalent in Bottle Water for the day - Sunglass and Suncream - yes even in Winter you can burn. - I provide a laminated map of the route, but if you wish to practice your navigation bring a Silva 4 Expedition Compass
