Group name: Hampshire
This group is a part of Hampshire Area.
Our activities include:
Short and easy walks, Path maintenance
Our groups help people to enjoy walking and to protect the places we all love to walk. We organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your fitness, health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and the countryside.
We lead nearly 300 walks each year in SE Hampshire/West Sussex, including the South Downs. We offer
- a short (4-6 mile) fairly local walk each Saturday morning,
- two walks each Sunday - a shorter (5-9 mile) walk, and a longer (9-13) mile walk
- a 10-12 mile walk each Wednesday,
- a 14-15 mile walk on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, usually at a faster pace
- a shorter (6-7 mile) mile walk each Thursday,
- during the summer months (mid-May to mid-August) we have a 4-6 mile evening walk on Tuesdays, usually starting at 7pm.
Non-members of Ramblers are welcome to try up to three walks without joining, to see how the walks suit them.
You can get full details of our walks using the links on the right, or by visiting our group website sehampshireramblers.org.uk (see Walks page). Please also check our Advice for walkers page.
We look forward to welcoming you on one of our walks. You can just turn up - no need to pre-arrange, though if you want more details of a particular walk to help you to make up your mind, just contact the walk leader.
In addition to our walks we have some social events such as a mince pie walk on 1 January, meals in local pubs, a coach trip, and some holidays etc.
Our members carry out regular surveys of all the footpaths in our area and undertake footpath clearance and replacing stiles with gates.
The picture at the top of the page shows woodland daffodils in Middleheath Copse, near Graffham, West Sussex - one of our favourite walks in March/April.
