Welcome to Clevedon Ramblers
Clevedon Ramblers Group are part of the Ramblers Association, a registered charity. Formed in September 1990 Clevedon Ramblers were part of the Avon Area group. When the County of Avon became North Somerset Unitary Authority, Clevedon Ramblers were transferred to Somerset Area group, however during 2015 we have transferred back into the Avon Area group
We have approx 160 members with an average attendance of 15 walkers per weekend. We are a friendly bunch and always keen to welcome new walkers - we hope that they enjoy themselves when out with us! So please come and sample our walks - you can walk 2 or 3 times with us before deciding to join the Ramblers Association.
Our members come from various areas of North Somerset, including Portishead, Yatton, Nailsea, Weston super Mare, Bristol and of course Clevedon.
Our walks programme is varied and includes: Saturday walks - some with pub lunches and others requiring packed lunches; and Sunday walks which are normally upwards of 9 miles, always with a packed lunch and sometimes with the chance of a cream tea or cold drink afterwards. With distances varying from 5 miles to 12+ miles we hope that we have something of interest for all walkers to enjoy. We issue a walk programme every four months - you can download the current one by clicking on FUTURE WALKS at the top of this page.
Meeting Point for walks
The MEETING POINT for all walks is the BCP (The Barn - free Car Park on Great Western Road BS21 6HG, ST407708 in Clevedon), unless there is a note in the program to the contrary. If it is more convenient for you to go direct to the walk’s start, phone the walk leader for details.
The time given in the program is when the group will leave BCP. It is helpful if you arrive about 10 minutes earlier than the leaving time, so that car sharing can be arranged.
Car sharing is arranged as much as possible; passengers are requested to offer a donation of 10p per mile to the driver with a maximum of £8 per person per trip. In addition Bridge tolls and/or parking costs are shared by each car. Passengers should be evenly distributed amongst the cars being used and drivers are asked to exercise discretion over donations, bearing in mind the number of passengers and distance travelled.
