Enjoy walking in Hampshire and the surrounding area then why not give us a try? We offer friendly company on our guided walks  which are at least 5 every week in the local area and further afield. These range in length from a few miles, ideal for those new to or returning to walking, to all-day walks for the more experienced walker. There is something for everyone so why not come along and meet us, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and above all enjoy yourself : newcomers are always welcome.

 Our public rights of way were first recorded  on a Definitive Map in the 1950's. Today, nationally an estimated 10000 miles of paths remain unrecorded and we have until 2026 to record them otherwise they will be lost forever. There may be some of these paths in the parishes which Southampton Group covers (Netley Marsh, Nursling & Rownhams, Ampfield, North Baddesley, Marchwood, Hythe & Dibden, Fawley, Chilworth, Totton & Eling, Ashurst & Colbury) and if you know of any or would like  information about  searching  for them see  Ramblers Don’t Lose Your Way
