Welcome to Colchester Ramblers
We have an active walks programme throughout the year with walks on both Wednesdays and Sundays. During the summer we also have Friday evening walks to gently ease you into the weekend.
Walks are of various lengths and duration, being a good mix of circular and figure of eights. If you've not walked before contact one of the committee to get advice on which walks are best to start out on.
Come on a Walk
If you are not yet a member of the Ramblers' Association then you can still join us on one of our walks. We advise you to come along for upto 3 walks on a try-out basis before joining the Ramblers' Association. As part of the joining process you will be allocated to your local group.
If you live outside the area and wish to receive our printed walks programme please contact our membership secretary
Night Walk Wednesday 24th June 2016
This year saw another very enjoyable Night Walk take place in the open countryside that surrounds the village of Wormingford. The evening started off with eleven of us enjoying a lovely meal at the Crown Inn where a select band from Colchester Ramblers were joined by a couple from Sudbury Ramblers who also invited two of their Dutch friends to come along. Ten off us then set off at 21.30 taking full advantage of a clear, still night. It remained quite light all the way round where we were able to see both the Plough and the bats flying about. We had our usual coffee break half way round, returning to the Crown at 23.30. As per our usual practice now, torches were banned and once the the newcomers gained confidence, they soon realised to use a torch would actually be counter-productive. As Bradley Walsh says on his daily programme "The Chase", why don't you come and have a go the next time we organise a similar trek?
