Group name: Stort Valley
This group is a part of Essex Area.
Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.
The Stort Valley Group of The Ramblers was formed in 1995, the current membership is about 80 strong. The group serves Harlow Town and the nearby towns and villages situated in the Stort Valley bordering Essex with Hertfordshire.
Our programme consists of regular Sunday walks throughout the year ranging between 8-12 miles in distance. During high summer we organize mid-week evening walks of approx. 5 miles or two hours walking. In addition we have the occasional weekend away. The group has also enjoyed a full week away, each year in July, walking some of the well-known long distance paths.
The Sunday walks meeting point in Harlow is in the car park, near The Greyhound Pub, School Lane, Harlow, (grid ref TL451109). We leave at 9.30 a.m. unless stated otherwise. Car sharing is available.
