The Ramblers, Northampton Group  
The Ramblers
Northampton Group

We are a group of 400 members. Most of our effort is put into our local walking programme. Most members have joined just to support The Ramblers in our efforts to maintain and improve access for walkers, (so we do not get 400 ramblers on a walk!). We encourage everybody to report access problems, and we organise footpath working parties such as building the Twywell steps. Any problems known to me are in my status report. Membership benefits include our newsletter and passworded facilities on this website (local walk descriptions and updated maps). These are in addition to the national benefits such as walk magazine, which includes walk descriptions throughout the UK.

Walking abroad is handled by HF Holidays and Ramblers' Holidays.

The Northampton Group is one of the local groups within the Northamptonshire Area of the Ramblers' Association.
