Chelmsford Rambling Club

Chelmsford Rambling Club are a local rambling club, first established in 1934, with a comprehensive walk programme, throughout Essex for many abilities. These include:

• All day walks on Wednesdays and Sundays (8 to 12 miles)
• Half day walks on Wednesday mornings (2 walks at differing distances and speed) and Saturday afternoons (4 to 6 Miles)
• Summer evening walks on a Wednesday (approximately 5 Miles)
• A monthly Tuesday morning stroll designed for the less able walker (approximately 3 miles)

Whilst we are affiliated to the Rambling Association, there is no need for our members to join the association. This means we can keep our membership fees to a minimum. Our current cost is £10 per single person per year, and couples and families enjoy reduced fees.

Our Aims are:
• to arrange a regular programme of walks for people of all ages and abilities (our ages range from the 40's to those in their 80's (who sometime seem to be the fittest amongst us!))
• to promote fun and healthy living via its walking programme
• to encourage the enjoyment, appreciation and conservation of the countryside and its network of footpaths
• the opportunity to meet new people and make new friendships
• to organise social activities (including quiz nights, 10 pin bowling and coach trips) and to promote a spirit of fellowship.

Being an independent club we are run by the members for the members and walks are organised and set out by our walkers, providing a consistent walking programme. Our current walking programme can be found on our website, together with our membership details @

We can also be found on Facebook

Interested or not sure, you can join us for a walk with no commitment so please contact us by e-mail to arrange this.
