Walking in Evesham
Welcome to the Evesham Ramblers – one of the five Ramblers groups in the Worcestershire Area. We are a friendly and sociable group that offers a full programme of walks in the beautiful countryside in and around Evesham and the surrounding countryside, including the nearby Cotswolds.
As well as our walking programme, we also organise a number of social events for our members, a highlight of which is our annual Walking Weekend.
Walking is a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts health and happiness. Everyone is welcome. You may be a local member, a member of another Ramblers group or just someone who wants to give us a try, before deciding whether to join.
We walk twice a week, every Sunday and Tuesday. Most of our walks are in the 5 – 7 mile range, although occasionally we do a longer one. Some are flat and some quite hilly, but the great majority are suitable for anyone who has some experience of walking in the countryside.
We walk at a fairly relaxed pace, allowing us to enjoy the countryside and each other’s company. We nearly always stop for a snack break and often there will be an opportunity to enjoy a pub lunch afterwards. We welcome well-behaved dogs on leads for most of our walks.
As well as our regular twice-weekly walks, we also lead a number of shorter mid-week evening walks during the summer months. These take advantage of the longer evenings as well as giving an opportunity to those who have to work during the day to attend.
