After the enforced closure due to Covid restrictions, the Club is once again up and running with a friendly and enthusiastic membership.  The club is now in its 27th year of operation and has around 80 members from Ledbury, Malvern, Ross-on-Wye and other parts of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire.

We walk most Thursday mornings starting at 10:00am.  The walks are usually around 5 miles in length and generally start within a 15 mile radius of Ledbury town.  From time to time, walks start from a pub in the area that will provide food, drink and relaxation after the walk is over.  Just occasionally, there are longer walks or on days other than Thursday, but these are not frequent.

We meet at a start point given in the Club programme, which also gives an indication of the distance and time to reach the start point from Ledbury.  Any car sharing arrangements are made on an informal basis between members.

The walks programme can be obtained from the Club Secretary or the Walks Organiser whose contact details are given below.

The Club has also produced a series of leaflets outlining nine different walks which either start from the town centre or within a short distance of the town.  With the sad closure (at present) of Ledbury's TIC, these leaflets are currently only available in season from the town's Heritage Centre in Church Lane.  Complete sets of leaflets can also be bought direct from the club (email details below) - but we regret we cannot sell individual leaflets in that way.

The club constitution states that all walkers, both members and visitors, walk at their own risk.  Please also note that the club constitution does not permit members and visitors to bring their dogs on club outings.

We walk on defined public footpaths and bridleways shown on the Ordnance Survey 1:25000 scale maps.  These can be muddy and the terrain rough.  Visitors who wish to walk with the club should ensure they have adequate footwear, and are properly clothed and equipped for the conditions.

The Ledbury Walkers' Club is not affiliated to the Ramblers Association.
