Clare Balding explores the joys of group walking.

For 25 years a group of Yorkshire friends have been meeting every few months for a hike through the countryside of northern England. Clare joins them on their silver jubilee walk.

The group first met as anxious parents watching their sons play rugby at Bradford Grammar School; when their sons left home they decided to keep in touch by organising regular rambles. Since then the walkers have helped each other through all that life can throw at you, using the healing powers of friendship, stunning landscapes and a good walk.

Clare meets up with the group as it tackles one of its favourite routes across the horse racing gallops of Middleham in Wensleydale.
