All rambles finish no later than 6.30 pm. Distance approx 10 miles with invariably shorter options.
Winter rambles finish earlier in accordance with the available daylight. These walks will usually be of a shorter duration.

3. General Advice.To enhance your enjoyment of the walks we would advise you to bring the following items with you:

4. Special Notices
- Participants of walks take part at their own risk
- Any participants seen to be dropping litter or behaving in an antisocial manner will be barred from attending future rambles
- No dogs or other animals allowed on the coach.
- Participants must not smoke on the coach
- The club do not accept and are not insured for members who leave the main party. It is very important to notify the leader if you decide to leave the main group. The leaders spend a lot of time and effort in planning the walks and both existing members and new members are encouraged to support the leader and stay with him for the duration of the ramble.
