The Ramblers

Walking in Amersham and District

The Amersham and District Group of the Ramblers' Association was founded in May 1972. We have a full programme of walks for adults of all ages. Non members are welcome to try out our walks although regular walkers are expected to join the Ramblers' Association. A list of our upcoming walks is in the left column.

There is a regular Sunday walk of 10-12 miles. This walk usually incorporates a pub lunch unless stated otherwise. Members who wish to bring a packed lunch are always welcome but they should not consume their own food in a pub or its garden. We find the pub lunch is a good opportunity for walkers to get to know each other. There are regular Wednesday morning walks and Saturday afternoon walks of 5-6 miles. There is the option of a pub lunch on Wednesdays after the walk. We usually offer at least one easy paced walk of 3-4 miles a week. These usually take place on either Tuesday or Thursday mornings but sometimes an afternoon walk is offered.

In addition to our walk programme we hold social events such as a barbeque and Christmas dinner. The group usually offers two short walking holidays each year. For details of the events and holidays follow the "Events" link. There are opportunities for volunteers as walk leaders, footpath checking, footpath mantenance and programme distribution, follow the link for volunteers for details.

The gallery will show a selection of reports and photographs from recent group walks and holidays.


The Seven Shires Way

The Seven Shires Way is a 234-mile walk around the Oxfordshire country boundary. The route criss-crosses the boundary taking the walker into seven shires from Gloucestershire to Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Wiltshire.


The path passes through a wide variation of scenery; from the marlstone scarp slope of Edgehill in Warwickshire to the ironstone villages of North Oxfordshire, the clay vale of Aylesbury, the beechwoods of the Chiltern Hills, the riverbank of the Thames, the open downland of Berkshire and Cotswold villages in Gloucestershire.


The walk has been divided into 21 section approximately 11 miles long.  These walks are usually held on the second Sunday in the month and involve a coach trip.  The cost of the coach depends upon numbers but is usually between £15 and £20.  Please contact us if you want to book a place.
