Notes about the Walks

  • DOGS: Dogs are welcome on our walks (unless otherwise stated) but must be kept under control.
  • Walks are FREE to all members of the RAMBLERS' ASSOCIATION. Prospective members are welcome to come on two or three walks before joining the R.A.
  • Call the Leader(s) if you would like more information about the walk or meeting place.
  • For longer walks, unless otherwise stated, please bring a picnic lunch to eat in the open air. This symbol Picnic Required indicates that a picnic lunch is required
  • Everyone participating in walks and other group activities does so at their own risk.

New Members:

  • Please make sure that you are 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 and easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted.
  • Most Ramblers' 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. Leaders may refuse to accept participants who in their opinion are inadequately equipped or unfit. When in doubt, contact the organisers or the walk Leader in advance.
  • For your own and others' safety please read and abide by any advice and guidelines issued by the organisers, and the instructions of the walk Leader. Though walking is inherently one of the safest outdoor activities, no activity is completely without risk and it is your responsibility to behave sensibly and to minimise the potential for accidents to occur.
