Welcome To Chester-le-Street Ramblers
Chester-le-Street Ramblers are one of 14 groups within the Northumbria Area.
The total area membership is 2101 as of March 2018
Chester-le-Street Ramblers, have a membership of 95 March 2018 with 25 to 30 members walking regularly.
We walk every Sunday with alternating 09.30a.m. & 10.30am starts. We walk distances of between 8 to 10 miles and whenever possible we try to include a shorter walk of around 5 or 6 miles. Please check with the relevant walk leader if a shorter walk is viable and always check our website for the latest updated information.
There are also monthly Thursday morning short walks of approximately 4 to 5 miles with a 10.00a.m. start normally ending in a coffee shop.
We have Wednesday evening short walks during the Spring & Summer months again of approximately 4 to 5 miles with a 6.30p.m. start.
All of our walks start from the old "Civic Centre" car park (DH3 3TE) up to 30 minutes prior to meet & greet newcomers and to make car sharing arrangements before heading off to the start.
Our group strongly advocate the use of car sharing as it reduces the number of cars on already overcrowded roads and reduces the amount of CO2 being pumped out into our atmosphere. It also prevents numerous cars parking at the walk start and allows non-car owners to participate in the healthy activity of walking in the beautiful countryside. Passengers donate a nominal amount to the car drivers.
We provide the opportunity to make new friends and improve your health whilst enjoying walks of a varied nature, We are free to try, and after 3 walks we are sure you will want to join us.
