Kingswood Ramblers

Avon Area

Welcome to Kingswood Ramblers

Cotswold Way

We are part of the Ramblers, the charity that helps everyone, everywhere, enjoy walking and protects the places we all love to walk. Kingswood Group is one of the groups in the Avon Area of the Ramblers.
We are an active and friendly group with an all year round programme of walks both in our local area and further afield. Sunday walks range between 6 and 10 miles. We have shorter Wednesday evening walks from April to September as well as some shorter morning weekday walks. See our Walks page for full details, where you will also find advice on what to wear and carry on a walk. If you think you'd enjoy walking with us please feel free to come out with us a couple of times to try us out before deciding to join the Ramblers Association.
