We were formed in 1986 and have about 160 members.
We have all ages in the Club but it is fair to say that the majority of us are between 50 and 80.
However we are a lively bunch and enjoy the outdoor experience and the many beautiful places it takes us to.
We organise a varied programme of walks across the broad Midland area throughout the year but also visit Wales, the Peaks and anywhere there are good rambles to be had.
The Club is affiliated to both The Ramblers and Holiday Fellowship (HF) and we organise weekends and longer days away at hotels or hostels on a regular basis.
Our newsletter called "Ramblin' On" is produced 3 times a year and helps keep our members informed.
We are a sociable group and as a result many of our rambles have a pub as the lunch break. Other social events can include Theatre Visits, Barn Dances, and maybe a Quiz Evening with Buffet and Dancing.
In an endeavour to broaden the type of walking we also organise regular coach trips in order to tackle walks further afield, and "Project Walks" where we walk long distance paths in short sections.
All of our walks are graded on the programme so that you can choose the ones that are suited to you.
The gradings are:-
A= Strenuous - might not be on good paths - may include grade 1 scrambles
B=Moderate Walking - may involve steep climbs.
C=Easy walking on reasonable paths - no steep climbs.
Does the Club welcome dogs?
Sorry but due to certain unpleasant incidents we do not at present allow dogs on a walk.
Can transport be provided?
Car sharing at the start is encouraged but cannot be guaranteed.
