We organise a wide variety of walks ranging from easy low level rambles to energetic mountain hikes.
It's not just about the Walking! There's a great variety of social activities on offer throughout the year, ranging from a night at the pictures to trips aboard. In the past we have organised rounders, white-water rafting, ice-skating, and cricket, together with trips to comedy nights, fireworks, concerts and the theatre. We also organise weekends away to areas further afield staying at youth hostels and camp sites.
New members are always welcome.

Walks highlighted with the Get Walking Week logo are free and open to all. They're run by Ramblers Groups and projects and Walking for Health schemes to help everyone discover the joys and benefits of walking.
Other walks listed here are intended primarily for Ramblers members. Non-members are welcome to join us on two or three walks, though if you walk with a group regularly you'll be expected to join the Ramblers.
For all walks listed here, please make sure that you're fit enough to undertake the walk you intend to join. If you're unsure of your fitness level, try a short and easy walk first. It's much better to find a walk a little too slow or easy than to exhaust yourself.
Some walks are off-road in rural areas. Please have suitable footwear and clothing for the walk you intend to join and bring some food and drink - even if the walk includes a pub or café break.
Walk leaders may refuse to accept participants who in their opinion are inadequately equipped or unfit. When in doubt, contact the organiser or leader in advance. For the safety of yourself and others please follow any advice and guidelines issued by the organiser and the instructions of the leader. Although walking is a very low risk activity, no activity is completely without risk and it is your responsibility to behave sensibly and to minimise the potential for accidents.
