Newark Ramblers

 The Newark Ramblers group was formed in 1971 and organises a walk almost every Sunday and Wednesday, chiefly in the local area. The walks vary in length from 4-10 miles, with the shorter walks being done at a leisurely pace which is ideal for new walkers. We also arrange coach or train trips for walking farther afield and, from time to time, we arrange short walking breaks.
