Group name: Peterborough

This group is a part of Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Area.

Our activities include:
Short and easy walks





Following guidance issued by the Government and Ramblers, our walks programme resumed on Thursday, 1 April. Please consult the listings for information on our walks. The easing of restrictions on 19th July will make little difference to the group, as members have become comfortable with the protocols already established for booking and record-keeping, and the general advice on protecting members of the Group will still be followed. It is particularly important that respect for all is shown during the walks, so as not to jeopardise other people's health when we have done so well so far. Please note that booking for any given Thursday walk opens on the Friday before, and for a Sunday walk on the Wednesday before. Contact the walk leader to register your interest.


Our groups help local people enjoy walking, both exploring and protecting the varied countryside around Peterborough. This encompasses areas in Rutland, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, and occasionally further afield to the Norfolk Coast.

New walkers are always made welcome. You will find that we are a sociable lot, but never interfere if you prefer to have thinking time to yourself. There is the opportunity to make new friends, who offer generous support if the occasion arises. You will discover how walking boosts your health, also how it always leaves you in a better mood at the end of the walk than when you started! This turns beneficial exercise into an activity that is eagerly anticipated and helps offset the immediate physical effects. We do acknowledge that the terrain around us does not offer the steep ascents of hillier areas… but a good leg stretch is always guaranteed. Non-members are welcome to join us but if they wish to continue to walk with us they will be expected to join the Ramblers after 2 or 3 walks.

If you would like to see some photos and informal descriptions of our walks, as well as other more formal details, do please have a look at our recently created website. It is still 'work in progress' but already shows a lot about us.

What we offer…

Sunday Walkers: We meet fortnightly on Sundays throughout the year for circular walks of 7 to 12 miles. Bring along a packed lunch and a drink.

Bus Walks: These walks are mainly linear and aimed at those without a car. Car drivers may, of course, join us if they can work out how that suits them. Part of the experience is, though, travelling out and back together. Our walks may involve ‘sightseeing’ of buildings/wildlife, or a convenient hostelry… and we normally bring a picnic lunch. Families are welcome.

Thursday Walkers: Our aim is to offer a programme of weekly circular walks of around 5 miles. We enjoy 'leisurely' walks, but they are more demanding than mere ambles, so a certain level of fitness is required. We start our walks promptly at the published time. Please park sensibly in and around the villages.

Note: Please contact the walk leader (name and telephone number is given with the details of the walk) if you have any questions.
Please note that walks may be cancelled at short notice due to very bad weather. Always contact the walk leader if conditions are doubtful, as the leaders will not risk unnecessary danger for the trip to the start of the walk as well as for the walk itself.
