EQUIPMENT FOR RAMBLERS

Like all outdoor activities, you need to be prepared for changeable weather and dress according to the conditions.


We suggest wearing sturdy walking boots.


No special equipment is required.

Description: Ramblers are the middle of the three main walking groups in terms of both distance and difficulty. We have two separate Groups, Ramblers 1 and Ramblers 2, which meet on different days.


The starting point for our walks is generally Burton Joyce, but this can vary, and the walks are usually between 5 to 7 miles long.  They can include footpaths tracks, and farmland, sometimes with hills and woodland, and occasionally with styles and kissing gates. Most of our walks can be found on the ordnance survey maps. Incorporating a coffee break, our walks usually finish about 13.00 - 13.30pm.


Both Groups comprise friendly, like-minded people from all walks of life, but with a common interest of enjoying the natural history around us, and in learning a little more about the history of points of interest and the villages in Nottinghamshire.


Each Group’s Co-ordinator will e-mail all members oftheir Group 10-14 days prior to the walk taking place, advising members of the starting point, time, type of walk and area that we shall be covering. The Co-ordinator may lead the walk, but we try to encourage all our group’s members to organise and lead a walk, which gives more variety in the type of walk.


We do feel that it is desirable that prospective ramblers have prior experience of this kind of walk.


If you enjoy a good walk and a chat do come and try us.
