Severn Springs - 12 January 22


Giants on Leckhampton Hill! Glorious sunny day and nice long shadows. (picture from Mary, walk lead by Lynne).

Cheltenham Racecourse - 31 December 2021


Thank you to Mary for leading a nice post-Christmas ramble from Cheltenham centre and around the racecourse. It was great to see such a large group - thirty in all - old and new faces. Thanks also to Mary and Dave for laying on the refreshments at Cheltenham GW Steam Railway Station. Happy New Year to all our ramblers!


Duntisbourne Rouse - 1 December 21


Duntisbourne Rouse coffee stop in sunshine. I think Michael was practicing his horse riding skills, sat astride the rather ‘wide’ wall stile onto the next public footpath. 23 out today.



Andoversford - 23 November 2021


Thanks to walk leader Anthony for a lovely Winter walk. 

Stroud - 23 October 2021


Scarecrow greetings on our Saturday walk through the Stroud valleys and villages. As expected with the Stroud area - a lot of ups-and-downs, with some nice views along the way.


Thanks for a very enjoyable autumn walk from Anne.

Andoversford - 8 September 2021


The first morning/pub lunch walk the Club has had for over 18 months.



15 August 21


After the Cleeve Hill walk we were met at John’s house and garden with wine, soup, soda bread, scones, cakes and crumble and ice cream!!! Beating that will be very hard.



4 July 2021


Delightful walk around Salperton and Hazleton led by Mary. We dodged the showers and were rewarded with sightings of deer, hare, wildflowers (poppies - left), serenaded by skylarks and also views of kite and buzzard. - Sue

29 May 2021


Really enjoyed the latest MeetUp walk. Train to Stroud and David and Liz led a great walk around the edge of Stroud, surprisngly not too many ups and downs considering the area - which I was glad of, as I had not walked with the club for 18 months and needing to get fit again. Almost back to normal - Chris.




Tuesday 29 December 2020


The 'Walking groups for six' initiative has enabled the club to have limited group walks within government COVID regulations, such as this one at Bredon Hill (thanks to leader, Sue). This walk was just before the county moved to Tier 4 and the scheme has had to be suspended for the time being.

Find out how your walking holiday can benefit the club...


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!
