Our Walks Programme

Due to circumstances beyond our control, there have been several changes to the walks program.  Please check the walks program below to make sure that you are aware of the latest information.

We organise Saturday, Sunday and Thursday rambles plus Wednesday “Sunset Strolls” during the lighter summer  evenings.

Saturday rambles are usually 4 to 5 miles and held in the West Midlands/Warwickshire area where travel passes can be used on local buses and trains. We  meet at Pool Meadow Bus Station or Coventry railway Station.

We hire a coach on Sunday, which gives more flexibility, and ramblers can choose if they wish to do morning or afternoon walks or both.   The coach leaves outside the Salvation Army building in Upper Well Street, Coventry.

The Wednesday and  Thursday walkers share cars and meet at a pub where  they normally have  a meal after the walk.

Where it states 6+4 miles on the programme, it means the ramble is 6 miles in the morning and 4 miles in the afternoon.

 

For last minute changes to any of the walks on the program, please see the “Further Information” page 

Saturday Walks using Local Transport
(© denotes circular route)

(Walks Organiser – Theresa)

We use public transport to reach our walks in the West Midlands and Warwickshire Counties, and sometimes in Coventry’s Green Spaces.
We meet at the Information Centre in Pool Meadow Bus Station, or the Train Station concourse.
Travel passes can be used on the local buses and trains.
Bring a snack/dinner and a drink to have along the walk.

Wednesday Sunset Strolls using Cars  (All walks are circular)

(Walks Organiser – Sue)

The Sunset Strolls take place on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer. Walks are circular and begin at a pub where we eat after the walk. The walks are no longer than 4 miles and take about 2 hours. 

If ordering a post-walk meal, please arrive at 5:45pm at the very latest.

 

Sunset Stroll B-Walks

From July 2022 we have decided to trial a Sunset Stroll B-walk.  Although the Sunset Strolls are very leisurely in pace, there are some  club members who may like to take part in a fairly short walk of no more than 2 miles.

Anyone wishing to do a “B” walk,  should meet up with the “A” walkers at the usual time.  They can walk along with the “A” walkers and turn back after about a mile or so.

One of the  “B” walkers will guide the other “B” walkers back to the pub where they are very welcome to join the “A” walkers for a meal.
