Statues and Odd Structures Walks – 22 & 27 February 2024
A number of club members were lucky enough to have been on one of Martin's two walks around the statues and structures of Cheltenham, and this was the 2nd walk by the carved tree in Clarence Square. We were also very fortunate to see a kingfisher in Pittville Park a few minutes previously! Thanks to Martin for a very informative and interesting walk.
Stay on track - race course walk - 31 December 2023
21 on the walk with 5 non walkers joining us for a welcome glass of mulled wine after a muddy walk - what did we expect after all the rain?Fortunately, the rain was intermittent, but the New Year greetings to one and all were sincere. Boots clean again, waterproofs stood up to the challenge so ready for the next ramble - Mary
Tewkesbury Treasure Hunt - 20 August 23
Thanks to everyone who supported the Treasure ramble in Tewkesbury (despite the alternative attraction of the World Cup final being on at the same time) and endured the fiendish clues and made it back to Touching Souls tea rooms. Well done to Carol's team the JACS who managed to get all the answers right! - Chris and Sue
Chedworth 10 August 23
A very warm and sunny day for a 4.5 mile circular walk from Chedworth village to the Roman Villa. 20 members out, including some potential new members, we were
glad of the shade from the woods and glades, but did enjoy our refreshment stop near Yanworth Mill, a handy wall to rest and admire the views.
Thanks to walk leader Glynis.
One of our members, Guy, has a blog covering some of his own favourite walks and walking experiences. He features an overview of walks such as The Ross Round, The Palladian Way and The Cape to Cape walk: Guy's rambling guide to walks in England, Scotland and Wales
Bad weather: Some walks may have to be cancelled because of difficult weather conditions. Our Walks Programme Secretary, Paul, is currently keeping members informed of any
alterations to the programme.
It is always a good idea to check your e-mail before going on a walk in case of a cancellation or a last minute change in the walk detail.
Club essentials (see the link at the top of the page)
Club rules document: The CRC is a formal club with a Chairman, committee, rules and constitution. The club rules state the guiding framework, governing how the club functions and members' responsibilities.
Health and safety: Please be aware, that with rambling, as with many outdoor activities - there is a small health and safety risk. Please read the health and safety guidance, particularly if walking with the club for the first time.

Cheltenham Rambling Club has recently joined The Walking Partnership. This new partnership, supported by Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, provides direct financial contributions to local walking groups to help with organising group walks, encouraging people to get out walking, helping to clear and improve footpaths, providing equipment to help walkers etc. Over the past 65 years, Ramblers Worldwide Holidays has given many millions of pounds to assist walking charities and conservation projects in Britain and the countries they visit on their worldwide holidays. Remember when you book to quote the name of our group, and we will then receive a contribution of £10 per person on UK holidays, £20 per person on short haul holidays, and £30 per person on long haul holidays. (important: please quote the club name at the time of booking - this cannot be done after the holiday). This extra funding could really make a difference to us!
The Cheltenham Rambling Club was founded in 1942 and is affiliated to the Ramblers Association. It is a friendly club and always welcomes new members.
