Walking in and around Southam
Welcome to Southam Ramblers, part of the Warwickshire area. We are a group of about ninety members, based in the small, but expanding, market town of Southam. We walk on alternate Wednesdays throughout the year. Usually there are between 20 and 30 people walking. Details of start places and times are on the website [link], and it is always possible to share transport from Wood Street, Southam.
Occasionally we offer longer walks, such as a day walk in the Cotswolds, with a pub lunch.
The group also looks after The Harry Green Way, a 20-mile circular walk, linking eight villages around Southam. The walk, devised by Harry Green, a founder member of Southam Ramblers, is recognised by the Long-Distance Walks Association. Members of Southam Ramblers volunteer to look after the path, checking that the route is clear and well signed.
Our friendly walking community
We are a friendly group, and you will be made very welcome if you join us. Every year we have social events, including an annual evening meal in a local pub, but also events incorporated into our walks, such as a stop for mulled wine and mince pies, a picnic, or lunch in an outdoor café or pub, as well as talks about the history of the area.
Summer Strollers are walks run by our group, but also open to the public, to encourage others to start walking. They take place on alternate Thursday evenings, from May to early-August. All of these walks start and finish in Wood Street, Southam, so no transport is required.
As a group we work with local partners to ensure that footpaths are clear and well signposted and that gates, stiles and bridges are in good repair.
