Welcome to Mid Wiltshire Ramblers - now on facebook!

 

We are now on facebook! 

If anyone in our rambling group wishes to see photos of our walks on facebook, Tim has started a new group.  It is called mid wilts ramblers, so tap on groups and take a look!  (Thank you Tim for organising this.)

 

Our group covers the area in central Wiltshire bounded by the Marlborough Downs in the north and Salisbury Plain to the south. It includes the historic town of Devizes and several attractive villages. The Kennet and Avon Canal with its famous flight of locks at Caen Hill extends through Devizes towards Pewsey.

The immediate countryside gives rise to many walking opportunities including the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Pewsey Vale and Marlborough Downs. Long distance paths include the Mid-Wilts Way and the Wessex Ridgeway. Two of Wiltshire's chalk white horses are visible on hillsides around Devizes.

The group meets weekly on Sundays in Devizes for morning, afternoon or all day walks. We have a varied programme of shorter and longer walks to suit most abilities. These may be in the immediate locality or some distance away. Occasionally there may be walks arranged on other days.

Traditionally the group has an organised walking week away in May, a weekend in September and a coach trip in June. Other social events are also included in our programme throughout the year. We are a comparatively small but very friendly group, walkers and visitors are welcome to join us.

The Ramblers exists to facilitate, for the benefit of everyone, the enjoyment and discovery that walking outdoors can bring; and to promote respect for the life of the countryside. The association encourages walking; protects rights of way; defends the beauty of the countryside; and has campaigned for many years for the freedom to roam over uncultivated, open country.
