Dartford Ramblers was formed in 1992 with Gravesham
added four years later. Our membership consists of
people from all walks of life who live in not only the
two districts mentioned but also Bexley and south east
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 evening walks.
Our walking area generally covers anywhere within a
40 mile radius of Dartford, with a variety of lengths
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
If you’re interested in coming along but not sure how
to get to the starting point, give us a ring.
