With both groups we meet in the first car park of the Lord Butler Leisure Centre in Saffron Walden at about 9.45am to depart promptly at 10.00am.  The number of members on a walk can vary between 6 and 30. We then share lifts and drive to our chosen location. The walks are usually between 3 and 6 miles long and we are normally back at the Leisure Centre between 12.00 and 1.00pm. The groups meet each fortnight and Ramblers 1 and 2 alternate on Thursday mornings. Wet weather gear and walking boots are recommended.  The walks can involve climbing over stiles. On some of the walks there will be opportunities to stop off for lunch at the end of the walk at a pub.
