Newark Ramblers

Welcome to Newark Ramblers

 The Newark Ramblers group was formed in 1971 and organises a walk almost every Sunday and Wednesday, chiefly in the local area. The walks vary in length from 4-10 miles, with the shorter walks being done at a leisurely pace which is ideal for new walkers. We also arrange coach or train trips for walking farther afield and, from time to time, we arrange short walking breaks.   

Apart from walking, the group has a very active programme of social events throughout the year.

Newark Ramblers is part of the national Ramblers Association, a charitable organisation dedicated to the preservation of our national network of public footpaths and to the encouragement of walking as a leisure activity. There are many advantages to being a member, including cut-price walking holidays and discounts on walking equipment.  

If you're not already a member why not come and join us for a walk as a guest?

You will be made most welcome.

We are now on Facebook!  Check out the page and 'like' what you see!

About Newark

E-mail Print PDF

Newark-on-Trent (generally shortened to Newark) is a market town in Nottinghamshire in the East Midlands region of England. It stands on the River Trent, the A1 (on the route of the ancient Great North Road) the A46 (the Fosse Way), and the East Coast Main Line railway.

The origins of the town are possibly Roman as it lies on the important Roman roads.

The town itself is a wonderful mix of old and new, from the old medieval building which can be found in and around the old market place to the newer developments which have been designed and incorporated without losing the feel of the old market town.

The town grew around Newark Castle, now ruined, and a large marketplace, lined with historic buildings. It was a local centre for the wool and cloth trade.

During the English Civil War Newark was besieged by Parliamentary forces, and had to be relieved by Prince Rupert in a battle known as the Relief of Newark

Situated in the Trent Valley there is a mixture of good topography ideal for the ramblers with a good network of bridleways and footpaths through the rural areas on the Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire borders.

Good transport links make Newark the gateway to the east of England and all the beauty of rural England.

Car Sharing

car shreOn the longer walks car sharing can be important; it has always been the custom that we share cars to minimize the number of journeys and ensure that as many people as possible are able to participate.
The regulars have their arrangements in place but, if any new walker needs a lift and doesn't know how to contact one of the usual drivers, they can always contact the walk leader on that particular day. Their telephone number is published along with the walk details..
