Walks around the local area

The East Hagbourne Rambling group enjoy regular walks in the local area. We meet up every 2nd Sunday of the month, usually at East Hagbourne Upper Cross at 1:30pm.

There is a specific directory listing for the rambling group with contact details. Please click here to visit that page.

Below are a list of walk reports we have completed. We hope you enjoy reading them and please join us for our next walk.

Walk #1 – East Hagbourne Rambers

July 10th, being very close to the summer solstice, 7 of us took advantage of the extended daylight hours to take our longest ramble of the year – nearly 9-miles.  The weather was partly cloudy and mild – ideal for such a sojourn.

Walk #5 – East Hagbourne Rambers

December 11. Only ten days from the winter solstice and a forecast of heavy showers. This walk needed to be short – and it was. Only six people showed up, but we were dressed for anything! Fortunately, the weather was kind as we did a quick tour of some neighbouring villages.

Walk #6 – East Hagbourne Rambers

Mea culpa: There was a New Years walk on 1 January and nearly thirty hardy folks enjoyed it, but your erstwhile leader did mess up on the starting time causing the valiant who had dutifully arrived at 1:00 (as listed in this fine publication) to wait a damp and chilly half-hour for those who arrived at 1:30, the time that I listed in a later email. Apologies. Am I fired?
