Welcome to our site.
Rambling is a great way to stay fit and active, meet like-minded people and connect with the great outdoors.
As part of the Ramblers Association we share and implement the association’s aims and objectives (see Links for R A website).
For our own part we are a fairly small, but active and friendly group based in the attractive rural Vale of Glamorgan area. Our walks programme is varied, taking advantage of our central South Wales location.
From our meeting place in Cowbridge, Pontyclun or Llantwit Major, we are within an hour of beautiful walking areas such as the Gower, Brecon Beacons, Wye Valley, Forest of Dean, Neath Valley and we respect the environment by meeting centrally and sharing cars.
Throughout the year we arrange full day walks (8 to 10 mile) on Sundays. During the summer we take advantage of the lighter evenings and host short (3 to 5 mile) walks in the local area on Wednesday evenings. We also, occasionally, put on 1/2 day and short walks for those who want a taster. Our occasional mid week History walks are very well attended.
We regularly walk the footpaths of our home patch and try to maintain their quality by organising path clearance evenings in the summer, followed by recuperation in one of the Vale’s many fine hostelries.
Our social calendar includes pub nights, group meals and weekends away.
All new walkers are welcomed as old friends. so please have a look at our walks programme (pdf) and come walk with us.
