Walk This Way

With Southampton's oldest walking group ( probably )

87 years old and still going strong - every weekend

Hooray for the Commonwealth!

Notes for Walkers:

  • Except where otherwise stated, all rambles will involve travel by car to the starting point of the ramble. If a member needs a lift then please contact the leader at least TWO DAYS before the event
  • The leader will be at the designated starting point unless prevented by severe weather conditions. If walkers are uncertain about the weather, they should contact the leader in the first instance
  • Own picnic lunch, or tea, including any drinks should be carried as required
  • We regret that dogs cannot be accommodated, due to difficulties with livestock
  • Please ensure that you are fit for the distance, including some hills and stiles. Do wear the appropriate gear – warm clothing, stout walking boots, and wet weather gear are recommended
  • There will be mud, so keep spare shoes or clothes in your car for your return
  • Some walks start at National Trust car parks or National Trust houses (marked NT).  So if you have a current NT card please bring this with you
  • Some walks are one-way, ie return to start by bus.  This is generally shown on the walks programme.  If you do have a bus pass bring this with you, otherwise some change for the fare
  • Members joining the activities do so at their own risk
