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
of the Ramblers' Association.

Kettering and Daventry.
