Walking for the pleasure and enjoyment of the countryside.

Our walks are normally circular & start at 10.00 am. Monday walks are normally about 2 hours 4-5 miles. Sunday walks are a bit longer at 5-6 miles.

We are continuing with our programme of organised club walks for the time being. This follows clarification from the Ramblers Association that organised ‘outdoor physical activity events’, Ramblers and Walking for Health group walks are exempt from the restrictions on social gatherings, known as the ‘rule of six’ in England (from 14 September).

Please read our COVID-19 Precautions before walking.
