From Wednesday 1 July, small group walks can restart in England - subject to the latest government guidelines.

  • Chiltern Weekend Walkers are very pleased to have restarted their programme, though at present, it is subject to the following conditions.
  • You must be an Ramblers member to join a walk, and you must book with the walk leader by email.
  • The maximum number on a walk is 6 including the leader.
  • If you are unable to attend, please cancel your booking so that someone else can take your place.
  • Do not turn up without booking as we shall have to turn you away.
  • Due to Covid-19, we all need to take extra steps to stay safe. Please follow all safety advice including the latest guidelines on physical distancing, transport, carrying a mask and hygiene. Please ensure that you have read the Covid-19 advice on the Ramblers website.
  • Please note that a record of attendance and contact details will be taken and retained for 14 days so that walkers can be traced if necessary.

Join us for walking and social events in the Chilterns

Regular weekend walks together with an active social calendar have made the Chilterns Weekend Walkers (CWW) one of the fastest growing walking groups affiliated to the Ramblers Association. The Group was founded in 2006 by a number of people moving out of the age group traditionally served by the Chiltern Young Walkers. We have grown rapidly in that time and now boast more than 400 members from a wide variety of backgrounds and nationalities. Whilst our main age group tends to be walkers in their 40s or 50s, we welcome walkers of whatever age who are looking for a friendly and welcoming group. We're always pleased to see new walkers so do come along and try us out. Just introduce yourself to the walk leader on the day.

Our Walks

The group has an active programme of walks throughout the year, and as our name suggests, these are mostly on a Saturday or Sunday. However, in the summer we also offer a midweek programme too. Our walks are usually between 5 and 12 miles and are mostly located in the picturesque Chiltern Hills stretching from the River Thames in the West right across to Hertfordshire. We guarantee you great scenery with the odd steep hill thrown in too.

Walks are led by volunteer members of the group, and on average you can expect around 20 people to come along, but numbers do vary. Most walks are listed on the Ramblers Association website and additional details are sent out on a weekly basis to our mailing list.

See the Walking with Us page for advice if you are new to walking.

Social Events

When we're not walking, we like to relax and have fun. Alongside our walks we have a very active social programme with members hosting pub nights, restaurant meals, concert & theatre trips and our annual Christmas Meal.

Weekends Away

We like to explore further afield, and organise a number of weekend trips for Group members throughout the year. Whether you enjoy the coast or the mountains or perhaps a trip overseas, there's something for everyone.

Membership

Regular Walkers with the group are expected to become members of the Ramblers and to specify CWW as their "home group".
