We are a friendly walking group based on the Essex/Suffolk border. We walk on Sundays and are mainly 'working age' people. We cover distances from 8 up to 15+ miles. There is no charge to come on a walk if you are a member of the Ramblers. If you aren't yet a Ramblers member then you can try up to three walks for free.

Please note that all walks start at 10:00am unless advertised differently and include a pub stop for drinks after a lunch picnic stop.
