Welcome to the Brentwood Ramblers group. Founded in 1968, we are one of the 20 Ramblers groups in Essex and have long been one of the more successful groups!
Our catchment area is formally defined by Brentwood Borough Council District, but many members live outside this area and opt to join it and enjoy its activities.
Our walks programme extends to more than 200 walks a year. We walk half days every Saturday and Thursday; Full days every Sunday and Tuesday of the year, as well as Wednesday summer evenings. Full day walks are generally 10-12 miles and half days 5-6 miles.
Many of the walks are in our local area but we do travel further afield into Essex, Kent, Hertfordshire and Suffolk. Coach walks to other areas, weeks away and weekends away complete our programme.
Joining our walking community
At Brentwood Ramblers we are known as The Friendly Walking Group, so come along and join us - Get Fit, Make Friends and Have Fun. If you are not already a member of the Ramblers Association, you are very welcome to come along on a few walks, to see if it is for you, before joining.
The Ramblers promote walking activities and protect paths and rights of way. We work closely with the local authority to clear paths, repair bridges and stiles etc, - this proves to be a surprisingly enjoyable as well as a very beneficial activity.
We want to simply to enjoy ourselves in the countryside and to create a sense of fun and companionship in everything we do. Hopefully this happens spontaneously on our walks, but we do run a number of social activities just to make sure.
