About the South Cotswold Ramblers Group
Why not walk with us on our varied Group walks in the Stroud district including Painswick in this beautiful part of Gloucestershire? Every week we put on two, three or even four walks and would love to see you.
Get to know the best rambles around the Five Valleys around Stroud including the Slad Valley made famous in Laurie Lee's Cider with Rosie, Westonbirt, Nailsworth, Berkeley, Slimbridge, Dursley, Frampton-on-Severn, Wotton-under-Edge and Tetbury as well as our regular walks outside this superb walking area.
If you decide to join our friendly group, you will also be supporting the valuable work of Ramblers in Britain and you will also be entitled to walk with any Ramblers' group in Great Britain! It's easy to join our group here.
Come and try a few walks with us soon, (there is no need to join Ramblers for up to three walks). Our walks are anything from 4 miles at an leisurely pace up to 10 miles or even more. Keep fit, have a chat and see the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside.
