We offer a range of different activities every week open to almost anyone - from absolute beginners to seasoned explorers - with no committment required, just turn up! Follow us on Facebook or join our mailing list HERE to be notified of our upcoming events. All the nessesary info is on this site but of course please don't hesitate to get in touch with us via email or our Facebook page if you have any questions whatsoever. We are more than happy to help.

Latest COVID-19 Club Update
We're now on the way out of lockdown! The next steps in our plan are as follows:
Now - In person day walks (15 people per group) and socials (6 indoors, 30 outdoors). Covid-secure camping trips are also able to go ahead after a successful trial!
Early July/August - Hard to confirm, but likely able to run overnight trips on a more regular basis, including our more recognisably normal bunkhouse Away Trips! We will update you after the next Government and BMC announcements.
The (New) SUHC Committee 2021-22
Term may have officially finished, but as and when Committee members are avialable, we'll continue to run some events (not nessesarily fitting to our term-time schedule). Here's what's coming up:
Local walks ranging from 12 to 26km (occasionally more), usually every Saturday during term time.
These walks are open to everyone, the only cost is the train ticket and your lunch.Day Walks
Whole weekend trips roughly once a month exploring some more remote areas of the UK.
Destinations include the National Parks (Lakes, Peak etc), Cornwall, Wales and Scotland.Away Trips
A chance to meet up with like minded individuals and have some walk-free fun!
Socials can involve almost anything: treasure hunts, ice skating and pudding socials have all featured in the past.Socials

Examples include long distance walks, navigation training, wild camping, winter skills, bothying and international trips.Expeditions
