Rambling and Hillwalking Club

Do you enjoy a walk in the countryside?

Would you like to join a friendly local group for walking and the occasional social event?

Monmouth Rambling and Hillwalking Club is a long established walking club based in Monmouth. We walk every Sunday in our beautiful local countryside.

Our walks vary in length from around 6 to 8 miles with a break for coffee and lunch along the way.

We extend a warm welcome to newcomers who may join us for up to three "taster" walks before joining the club. We charge a small annual subscription to cover admin and insurance costs.

FAQs

Can I try a walk?

New members may try up to 3 walks before joining the club. Contact us for details of upcoming walks.

Where can I meet for a walk?

We meet every Sunday morning at Glendower Street car park in Monmouth and leave there around 9.30, exact departure time depending on how far it is to the start of the walk.

Do I need special equipment/gear?

We strongly recommend you wear good walking boots and have a waterproof jacket and overtrousers. Some walkers like to use walking poles to take the weight off their joints and assist with balance over rough terrain. In addition, a rucksack for carrying food, water and any other items is required.

Do I need to bring sandwiches and a drink?

Yes. Our walks usually include a short coffee stop mid-morning and a picnic stop for lunch. If there is a convenient pub or café at the end of a walk, members may wish to have a drink before going home.

Can I share transport?

We encourage our members to share lifts to minimise environmental impact. Passengers contribute towards travel costs.

Can I bring a dog?

Due to the likelihood that we will be walking among livestock, the Club does not allow dogs on walks.

How do I join the club?

Please complete a membership form and give it to a committee member on the next walk along with your subscription.

What about insurance?

Whilst the club has Public Liability insurance covering damage or injury that any member of the Club may cause to a third party or property, the committee and walk leaders cannot accept responsibility for any loss or injury suffered by anyone participating in our walks. Participation in our walks is entirely at the risk of the member or guest.

How far do you walk?

Our walk programme includes walks varying in length from around 6 to 8 miles but once a month we include a longer walk of 9-10 miles.
