The Ramblers' Association exists to facilitate, for the benefit of everyone, the enjoyment and discovery that walking outdoors can bring; and to promote respect for the life of the countryside.
The association encourages walking; protects rights of way; defends the beauty of the countryside; and has campaigned for many years for freedom to roam over uncultivated, open country.
The association is a democratic, voluntary organisation, registered as a charity (no. 306089).
We welcome new members to join us. Come on a trial walk. See 'Join Us for a Walk' for further information.
Our Group walks weekly on Sundays all year, with additional midweek walks in summer.
Our walks programme is varied and widespread, taking in the Cotswolds, the Malverns, the Chilterns and
We have walks ranging from five to fifteen miles, but most are 10-12 miles.
Please see our current Walks Programme.
We have an active Social Programme which include weekends away as well as other special events.
The committee and members have always placed a high priority on the monitoring of the footpaths. The group is consulted on all planning issues potentially affecting the large path system we cover, and we actively report and check problems with footpaths in our area.
We pride ourselves on having an intimate practical awareness of all the hundreds of miles of footpaths in our area and in the efforts we make to maintain and improve the system we enjoy. Warwickshire is fortunate in having a general awareness of the value of its environment amongst the people who live in the County, and we cooperate with all the organisations associated with the countryside, including the farmers and the Warwick District Council, to preserve and improve the footpath system.
