Welcome to Kingswood Ramblers
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.
Latest News October 2017
Update from Ramblers Chief Executive Officer
Here is a link to an update from Ramblers CEO containing information on various Ramblers campaigns, information for walk leaders and volunteers:
We have recently heard of the death of Fred Peddle aged 91. Fred and his wife Dorothy, who died some years ago, were at the group's inaugural meeting. He was our first chairman and also led a number of walks. Our condolences go out to his family.
SOS Snip Our Stiles
We know that some members are doing this already - but have you been on a walk, either with a group or by yourself and come across an overgrown stile? If this happens you either battle through it or take a different path. If a stile is overgrown and not used the path up to it will also become overgrown and not used.
To remedy this we are asking you to take a pair of secateurs with you on your walks and spend a few minutes cutting back the overgrowth. You'll be amazed how quickly a stile can be made more accessible.

We now have a team of eleven and meet on a Saturday morning on a regular basis, usually monthly, to maintain our local paths. We always need extra help as not everyone is available each month.
We meet at Warmley Station car park at 9.30 am and aim to finish by 12 noon. If you want to join us please contact John Davis 0117 9090535.
