The Oldham Ramblers group helps local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk.
We are one of almost 500 groups across the country that are part of The Ramblers, a charitable organisation of 100,000+ members, whose goal it is to promote the enjoyment and benefits of walking and to protect and enhance where we walk. Within the Ramblers, we are a member group of the Greater Manchester and High Peak Area.
New members are always welcome!
We are a very active group offering throughout the year:
Two walking groups on Sundays – easy and moderate.
One Wednesday walk with pub lunch/ an easy or moderate day walk.
The 5-Milers: easy walks under 5 miles.
Summer Evening walks of 3 – 4 miles.
Occasional coach excursions and hostel weekends for members.
Liaison with local authorities on footpaths and other matters concerning walkers.
You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore. Just turn up at the starting point with your boots, waterproofs and some lunch. If you enjoy your day with us, it’s just a case of becoming a member.
Dogs are only accepted on walks at the discretion of the leader and must be kept on a SHORT lead at all times. Please check first; some leaders have stated registered assistance dogs only. Walkers should therefore contact the walk leader in advance to discuss requirements.
