Basingstoke Ramblers

We are a group of ramblers about two hundred strong. We walk at least three times a week, Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday and Tuesday evenings in the longer days, with the occasional weekend and holiday walks. Most walks on Saturdays and Wednesdays are about six to eight miles.


Health Walks

Walking for Health is a national initiative – a partnership between the Ramblers Association and Macmillan Cancer Care – working towards encouraging physical activity for everyone.
