LMC Mountaineering Club is a
small, informal walking club consisting of people with a
past connection to Shell and many other non-Shell folk.
Members are mainly based in London or the south-east,
with other members spread around the UK.
We meet roughly once a month,
either for day walks around London, or for weekends further
afield throughout the UK.
We aim to provide a diverse and
interesting Programme of walks. Weekend meets over
the past few years have included the Lake District,
Yorkshire Dales, Teesdale, Northumberland, Shropshire,
Isle of Wight, the Gower Peninsular,
the Cambrian mountains, and the Brecon Beacons.
Day walks have taken place in Greater London,
Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Sussex, Kent, and
Hampshire and have included sections of the North Kent
Way, the London Capital Ring and the London Loop.
Members have walked many sections of the North Downs Way
and the North Kent Way, and a group has walked the South West Coast Path
in weekly sections over the past few years.
We stay mainly in B&Bs or pubs, with
some meets based in self-catering cottages or hostels.
