Shrewsbury Ramblers publish a walk programme 3 times per year. 

The NEW walk programme is available here. This runs until the end of  February 2019. Please check the "Newsflash" feed on this for any updates as changes due to weather etc will be there. The "news" items are now in a separate newsletter - see the current edition here. 

Times stated in the programme are at the meeting point in Shrewsbury. Please arrive early to allow time for leaders to give details and arrange car sharing. If you intend going directly to the walk start point please check with the walk leader beforehand.

Walks are primarily intended for Ramblers members. However, non-members are very welcome to join as guests for upto three walks to try us out. Assuming the new Rambler intends to become a regular walker, they are expected to have paid their subscription by the fourth walk. Ramblers members from other groups and areas are, of course, welcome too.

Only registered assistance dogs are allowed on our walks.

Walks are graded using Ramblers National guidelines. Where a Grade+ follows a walk description it indicates that the walk is harder than the average for the "nominated grade", but its ascent or terrain does not warrant it being placed in a higher category. Please ensure you are capable of completing the length and grade of the walk.

The walk leader will be responsible for giving route instructions. Walk instuctions will be issued to Ramblers from the front of the group. For this reason Ramblers should refrain from walking ahead of the leader. The only exception to this is where Ramblers are walking up an incline and where the natural pace of a walker may mean he passes the walk leader. It is assumed that  this will be the exception and that Ramblers will pause to allow the walk leader to resume the lead as soon as the incline has been completed.
