             "You'll Never Walk Alone with the Chelmer & Blackwater Ramblers"

The Chelmer & Blackwater Group is centrally based in Chelmsford, Essex and our experienced Leaders arrange over 200 walks annually. Prospective new members are always welcome.

Our walks program has full day walks of 10-12 miles on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays starting at 10.15am, and afternoon walks of 5-6 miles on Saturdays starting at 1.30pm. Evening 'pub' walks of 4 miles are held on Tuesday evenings in June and Thursday evenings in July starting at 7.30pm. Many of our led walks take place in central Essex, normally within a 30 miles radius of Chelmsford, but we often visit venues further afield in London and the surrounding counties as well as organising coach walks and social events. Walks are usually circular but sometimes are figures of eight, and full day walks nearly always stop at a pub at lunchtime. The numbers on walks can vary from 5 to 35, however you can always guarantee a very enjoyable walk led by experienced leaders.  We are a mixed bunch of characters from all walks of life who enjoy each others company and very much welcome new walkers to our Group.

Ramblers Association states: '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.'
