If you have not been out with us before please click on this link ‘Walking with Rail Rambles’ which will give you lots of  important information including how our walks graded, as well as advice on travel, clothing, refreshments etc. 

Note – please check outward and inward train times as these are subject to change, particularly in light of planned industrial action and/or unforeseen maintenance work.  (You can find information on the National Rail website.)   We are also pleased to announce that we have set up a Whatsapp group, to send out alerts on the day of our walks if any last minute changes are necessary.  If you would like to be included please send your mobile number to info@railrambles.org
