Walking in Peterborough and beyond
Peterborough Ramblers is a flourishing group of walkers who organise up to two walks a week. We actively welcome non-members to come along and try out a walk or two with us before committing to becoming members of the Ramblers.
Our walks start at a variety of places in Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Rutland, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire, with some members travelling across the counties to join us regularly, while others choose only to participate in those walks in their own locality.
Our Thursday walks are usually between 4½ and 6 miles; those on Sundays are 6 – 8 miles. New walkers are always made welcome and are fully supported by regular members of the group.

One of the great advantages of walking in our region is the enormous variety of countryside, landscapes and unexpected sites that the area has to offer. Our walks can take us past ruins of buildings occupied by members of the Gunpowder Plot, through to fields which still carry the depressions made by a plane crash in the Second World War. Inevitably, the River Nene is a frequent feature, with its many locks and quiet riverside paths.
Whatever the context of our walks, the landscape has to be seen to be appreciated. We explore ancient woodlands, places of historical and sociological interest, and sites that reflect our industrial heritage, almost all of which are found across relatively flat terrain in the company of a highly sociable group.
