Loddon Valley Ramblers
Since its 1935 inauguration, the Ramblers has helped coax, campaign and path by path build, England, Scotland and Wales into some of the most walk-friendly countries in the world. It is at the heart of walking in Britain.
Come and walk with us!
Loddon Valley Ramblers help local people enjoy walking. We look after public rights of way and try to gain new ones. We have an experienced team that have replaced stiles with kissing gates to improve access for everyone to enjoy the countryside. We organise a variety of regular walks that are led by experienced leaders.
Each Thursday morning and Sunday morning we offer a short walk of four to six miles, and on many Sundays there is the alternative of a long walk of eight to twelve miles. On occasions, these are strenuous, so, if that's a concern, it may be worth checking with our leader on the nature of the route. On Tuesdays, usually twice a month, we have a long walk of ten to fourteen miles. You can find the details of our walks programme by clicking the link above left. If there's anything you're not clear about, please call the leader.
There is no commitment when you first walk with us, but if after two or three times out with us, you would like to do more both with us and to support the campaigning work of the Ramblers nationally, then please join Ramblers, again click on the link in the left-hand navigation.
In addition to the regular walks programme, each year we offer two walking weekends based in hotels in different parts of the country and, usually, an overseas walking week holiday, as well as several social events.
We are very proud to have developed The Wokingham Way, a 56 miles walk in 10 sections around the Borough boundary. The route is very varied, from the majesty of the broad Thames, where the path follows the river's course north of Reading, to ancient lanes and byways and open fields. Just follow the link on the left, to enjoy any part of it.
