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 London.
On Sundays we usually have a longer walk or a shorter one, and sometimes a choice between both. There are also frequent Wednesday 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 4 to 12 miles, and including the occasional figure of eight walk 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.
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, Barn Dances, Quiz Nights, and a Christmas walk followed by lunch.
If you’re interested in coming along but not sure how to get to the starting point, give us a ring.
