Group name: East Devon
This group is a part of Devon Area.
Our activities include:
Short and easy walks
East Devon Ramblers are a very enthusiastic and friendly group, and we invite you to walk with us. Visitors and new members are most welcome. We offer a choice of 6 varied walks a week, ranging from a leisurely half-day stroll to a full-day strenuous hike.
COVID-19 UPDATE from Monday 29 March 2021
The UK government roadmap for lifting lockdown means that, from Monday 29 March, the general population in England has been allowed to walk outside in groups of six or two households,
The UK government also confirmed that organised sport and physical activity, which includes Ramblers group walks, could also resume, and are exempt from legal gathering limits.
What this means for East Devon Ramblers
Some, but not all walks, in the published programme (below) are going ahead, and they will be limited to a maximum of 12 participants through until 30th April*. This is a developing situation, so please watch out for additional "pop-up" walks, and possible cancellations, by checking the "Find a Walk" page (here), or on the Mobile App (Android, Apple).
*Individual walk leaders may reduce below 12 if they think advisable,
depending on route and other circumstances.

Why walk with us?
It's a great way to walk in good company, meet new people, stay or get fit, and simply enjoy our stunning coastline and countryside. We reached our 50th year in 2020, so you can be confident you will be joining a successful and well established, locally run group.
Where do we walk?
Usually in and around East Devon and West Dorset, but occasionally further afield to Dartmoor and Exmoor, as well as other parts of Devon, Dorset, and Somerset. A number of our walks include sections of the Jurassic Coast, Britain's first natural World Heritage Site.
The group also organises a variety of other activities:
- walking holidays in Britain, and occasionally Europe
- social events such as quiz nights, skittles, barn dances and suppers
- an annual Christmas lunch
The Ramblers are the largest representative body of walkers in the UK and we support the Ramblers’ objectives of protecting and enhancing public paths through our local network of footpath officers and by supporting Pathwatch.
