The North-East Wiltshire group covers the towns of Swindon and Marlborough and a large area of beautiful and varied countryside surrounding them.
Our area extends to the River Thames in the north, Wootton Bassett and Avebury in the west, Tidworth and Ludgershall in the south and the county boundary with Berkshire and Oxfordshire in the east. It includes the Marlborough Downs (part of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), the Cotswold Water Park, Savernake Forest, part of the Kennet and Avon Canal and the world heritage site at Avebury.
As well as walking in every part of our area we occasionally travel further afield. Our walks typically range from 3 to 15 miles, and from easy to strenuous. We walk every Sunday (sometimes offering a choice of two walks) and on many Saturdays as well. We also have a few walks on weekday evenings, mainly in the summer, usually finishing with an optional pub meal.
Most walks have a Swindon meeting point so that we can car share to the start of the walk and give members without cars a lift. This enables us to take as few cars as possible. Some walks use public transport.
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.
