Walks programme – Croydon Ramblers.
Information about Croydon Ramblers Walks programme.
Typically walks are as follows:
- Saturdays – A longer and a shorter walk if possible
- Sundays – All day long walk and a half day walk with, where appropriate, a stop for tea & cakes. Sometimes a visit to a garden open under the National Gardens Scheme.
- Mondays – The third Monday of each month a 4 to 5 miles morning walk to give the newly retired an introduction to walking.
- Tuesdays – Usually about 8 miles.
- Wednesdays – Mostly a half day walk of 4 to 5 miles, sometimes up to 6 or 7 miles. Sometimes including an interest visit.
- Thursdays – Usually 10 to 12 miles, sometimes up to about 14 miles. This is a popular day and we now have two walks on most Thursdays.
- Fridays – Anything goes! Long walks, short walks, interest walks, new areas further afield. We aim to get one interest walk a programme that has only a minimum of walking – from the station or bus to the venue.

- If you are walking with us for the first time please make yourself known to the leader.
- Wear suitable stout footwear and outdoor clothing appropriate for the season and weather.
- When walking on roads keep in single file on the right hand side to face oncoming traffic, unless indicated otherwise by the leader.
- On whole day walks bring an adequate supply of food and drink, unless the programme indicates a pub lunch.
- Tell the leader if you need to stop at any time or break off before the end of the walk.
- Dogs on leads are usually permitted on walks but if restricted to Registered Assistance Dogs Only this will be noted in the programme.
- We like to be sociable and the main reason we walk is to enjoy ourselves.
