Finding the start of your walk

Start and meeting points include nearest postcode and an Ordnance Survey grid reference accurate to 100m. Use postcodes with care: in rural areas the nearest postcode may be some distance from the actual start point. See OS maps for an explanation of how to use grid references.

Grades

Easy - walks for anyone who does not have a mobility difficulty, a specific health problem or is seriously unfit. Suitable for pushchairs if they can be lifted over occasional obstructions. Comfortable shoes or trainers can be worn.

Leisurely - walks for reasonably fit people with at least a little country walking experience. May include unsurfaced rural paths. Walking boots and warm, waterproof clothing are recommended.

Moderate - walks for people with country walking experience and a good level of fitness. May include some steep paths and open country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm, waterproof clothing are essential.

Strenuous - walks for experienced country walkers with an above average fitness level. May include hills and rough country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm, waterproof clothing are essential. People in doubt about their fitness should contact the organiser or leader in advance.

Notes

Walk gradings are provided as a general guide only. If you have any doubt about your fitness for a particular walk please contact the organiser or leader in advance.


Bear in mind the distance of the walk, regional differences in terrain and the possibility of bad weather, which can make a walk more difficult than planned.

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.

Leaders may refuse to accept participants who in their opinion are inadequately equipped or unfit.


1. Everybody is welcome on walks suitable for their fitness level.  After three walks you will be expected to join Ramblers, 2nd Floor, Camelford House, 87-90 Albert Embankment, London SE1 7TW or online at www.ramblers.org.uk in order to continue walking with us.  Membership is on a national, rather than on a local, basis.

2. Ramblers encourage car sharing; drivers appreciate it when a contribution is made to fuel costs.

3. Dogs are not permitted on walks unless specifically indicated on the programme, and they must be kept on the lead at all times.

4. Ramblers cannot accept responsibility for any loss or injury incurred during these walks.
