Festival of Winter Walks 17th Dec 2016 – 8th Jan 2017


17 December 2016 to 8 January 2017

Have a look at our GR Walks page for 2 weeks of Winter Walks!

Everyone’s invited

Our Festival of Winter Walks is open to everyone. We hope to have short fun walks that children will love; leisurely strolls for people new to walking; and longer walks for those that want a good leg-stretch over the Christmas break.

Choose a walk

Whatever your age or walking ability there’s a walk for you. You can also join health walks under 5 miles; tag along with our working age walkers or find a fun festive-themed walk.

Walks take place across Gloucestershire, some down urban streets and across country fields. Plus all of our walks are run by friendly and welcoming walk leaders who’ll make sure you never get lost.

So put on your hat and scarf and join us as we head out into the crisp, clear winter to enjoy the season the way we know best, on our feet.

Thames Path 20 years!


20th Anniversary Thames Path Baton Walks Saturday 9th July to Sunday 24th July 2016

The Thames Path is a National Trail, first proposed in 1948 and inaugurated 24th July 1996.
Like many of Britain’s National Trails, its existence is due in large part to the efforts of the Ramblers, and particularly David Sharp, who led the successful campaign to establish the Thames Path. The path follows the length of the River Thames from its source near Kemble in Gloucestershire to the Thames Barrier at Charlton. It is about 184 miles (296 km) long

The Ramblers is celebrating the 20th anniversary with a sequence of walks along the route passing a baton from one to the next. GWG is taking part in walks 1 and 2
