About our Club
Wiltshire Wanderers are a friendly welcoming young persons Ramblers walking group that covers Wiltshire and the immediate surrounding counties, for people roughly between the ages of about 20 and 40 ish, though if you are over this age you will be welcome to walk with us.
Wiltshire Wanderers is affiliated to the Ramblers, and as such members are insured and benefit from discounts at participating retailers.
As a Ramblers group we would demand you become a Rambler Member - there's valuable discounts available so the membership pays for itself, and you gain insurance cover. We allow new walkers to come out a maximum of 3 times before they must become Ramblers members. This is pretty standard like any other Ramblers group.
The Ramblers does ensure our footpaths are maintained and looked after.
There are many established Ramblers Groups all over Wiltshire catering for the over 50s and more usual stereotypical image of the Rambler member being retired. We are the only group catering for younger walkers.
We are not a dating group or a singles group, but we have many single people and couples walking with us.
Our walks are generally on a Sunday morning from 10 or 10:30 am and can be from 6 to 15 miles in length. We also do Saturday walks during the summer and shorter evening walks as well during this time of between 4 and 6 miles.
We strive to put on 2 walks a month, all over Wiltshire and surrounding counties, and we also sometimes do walks with the Long Distance Walkers Association (LDWA) where the length of walk can go up to 26 or 40 miles in a day.
We are not a group for children or disabled (in wheelchair) walkers, though walkers with dogs are welcome, provided they are well behaved and on leads.
Please remember to wear good walking clothing such as walking trousers, wet weather clothing is also advisable (water proofs top and bottom, gaiters etc), good stout walking boots with ankle support with or withour walking socks, and please also remember to bring plenty of water with you on our walks. Sometimes its advisable to bring an extra pair of shoes and socks to change into after our walks if the walking boots are muddy, for you to enter pubs or your car home. Please do not wear jeans as if they get wet they take ages to dry and are not ideal for walking in.
We can offer lifts to members to share on transport costs. Ring the walks organiser before the walk starts.
We generally always go to the pub for a drink and sometimes an optional meal after the walk, so if you want to join us, you may want to bring some money.See Our Club Profile
