We offer a range of walks using routes in Hampshire and West Sussex.  Almost every Sunday through the year we have 3 walks:  two all-day walks, one of about 14-16 miles the other of 9 - 11 miles.  On the all-day walks there is a morning break for a drink and snack with a longer break at lunchtime for sandwiches or whatever you have brought with you.  Very occassionally we stop near a pub or cafe so you can buy a drink (click on the walk title  in the column to the right  for more information including a map showing the start or to check who is leading the walk).  In the afternoon there is usually a shorter drink stop. 

In addition to the longer walks we have a Sunday afternoon walk of between 5 and 6 miles at a slightly slower pace than the all-day walks.  There wil be a short snack/drinkl stop on these walks.  All our walks may involve some stiles (occassionally quite a few!) and rough paths and tracks.  If the route is going to be very hilly this is usually indicated in the walk details.  All these are listed on the Find a walk site

What to wear and what bring on a walk:  most days you will need a waterproof jacket in case of rain and waterprooof walking boots with a decent grippy sole help a lot.  When it is warmer you may prefer to wear lighter footwear or some sort of trainers.   You will need to bring an extra layer in case you get cold, or for when we take a break, plus something to drink and eat.  On most walks we do not stop where there is anywhere to buy a drink or a snack. 

As well as our Sunday walks we havea number of mid-week walks.  Some are morning walks of about 5 - 6 miles, others are longer and some have a planned lunch stop at a pub.  Again the walk details tell you this. 

Want to find out more:  please get in touch with the Group - there is a phone number and email link at the top of the front page.  The contact telephone number of the leader is given by each walk:  they will be very pleased to talk with you about the walk (where it starts, how to get to the start, the type of countryside you will be walking through).   

We look forward to welcoming you on one of our walks.  Not a member of Ramblers?  Not a problem - you are most welcome to come a long a sample one or two walks to see if joining our Group and The Ramblers is for you.  We look forward to making you feel welcome.
