Dartford Ramblers was formed in 1992 with Gravesham added four years
later. Our membership consists of people from all walks of
life who live not only the two districts mentioned but also in
Bexley and south east London.
Our all-day walks take place on Sundays, and there are also
frequent Thursday morning walks which end with a pub lunch. In the
summer we arrange Saturday ‘breakfast’ walks and occasional
Our walking area generally covers anywhere within a 40 mile
radius of Dartford, with a variety of distances between 5 to 12
miles, and including some figure of eight walks where ramblers can
join for just the first or second half if they wish. In such cases
the second time listed on the walks programme is for the start of
the second half of the walk. These are ideal for new walkers who
want to get some practice in before embarking on a longer distance!
We are a very friendly group and all new members are welcomed
with open arms. Many personal friendships have evolved
through the common interest of walking.
We have a varied social calendar, including weekends away staying
at hotels and/or university campuses, Barn Dances, BBQ walks, Wine
& Wisdom evenings, Family Rambling Days and, most popular of
all, the Christmas Lunch Walk.
If you’re interested in coming along but not sure how to get to
the starting point, give us a ring.
