General Information

We are a group of 400 members. Most of our effort is put into our local walking programme. Many 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!).

As well as arranging regular walks we organise footpath working parties such as building the Twywell steps. Membership benefits include our newsletter and local walk descriptions.. These are in addition to the national benefits such as 'Walk' magazine, which includes walk descriptions throughout the UK.

Walking abroad is handled by and Ramblers' Holidays.

The Northampton Group is one of the local groups within the Northamptonshire Area of The Ramblers (formerly known as "The Ramblers' Association").

See the Links section below for other groups in the area.
