Kingswood Ramblers

Avon Area

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 offer a full programme of walks both in our local area and further afield. See our Walks page for full details, where you will also find advice on what to wear and carry on a walk. You would be very welcome to try two or three walks before deciding whether to join the Ramblers. You can join via the box on the right.
We also work with South Gloucestershire Council on footpath clearance and protecting paths.

Footpath Clearance

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.

Walking Group for Visually Impaired Walkers

Kathryn Benjamin from Brunel Plus group is involved in setting up a Ramblers-affilitated walking group for visually impaired walkers to walk with sighted people, some of whom will act as guides.
They are looking for walk leaders and guides to support the programme. They're aiming to offer a walk a week, ranging from a 3 mile stroll to more challenging hikes. They hope to coincide the launch with the Bristol Walking Festival next May.
If you are able to help as a walk leader or guide please contact Kathryn direct at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
