Our group's territory lies in south-east Cumbria, from the Lancashire border to Langdale in the centre of the Lake District National Park. It includes Ambleside, Arnside, Bowness, Burton-in-Kendal, Grasmere, Kendal, Kirkby Lonsdale, Milnthorpe, and Windermere. We look after the footpaths and countryside within our territory, and carry out footpath surveys both inside and outside the National Park.
We organise a wide range of walks within Lake District Area and beyond led by our members. We walk on alternate Tuesdays and Wednesdays and every Thursday meeting at the B&Q car park, Burton Road, Kendal to share cars to the start of the walks; a donation is given to the drivers to cover costs. The full walks programme can be seen and downloaded from our website.
We publish three books of walks within the Kendal area (Walks in South Lakeland) and a set of 3 mile Short Walks Leaflets and arrange social events and breaks for our members in other parts of the country; this year at Harrogate.
You are welcome to any of our walks either as a member of another group or a non-member wishing to try walking for the first time. There is no obligation to join until you are sure. Please contact the walk leader if you require any help in deciding if the walk is suitable for you.
The Ramblers Association
The Ramblers is a charity whose goal is to protect the ability of people to enjoy the sense of freedom and benefits that come from being outdoors on foot.
We’re an association of people and groups who come together to both enjoy walking and other outdoor pursuits and also to ensure that we protect and expand the infrastructure and places people go walking. For more information and to join us visit www.ramblers.org.uk
