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.
Scroll down to see our current walks programme and details. Hope to see you soon!
