White Cliffs Ramblers
The White Cliff Ramblers was established in 1989 and has run (er... walked) continuously ever since.
We have a weekly program of walks throughout the year. We walk on Sundays and Thursdays, distances varying from 5 to 15 miles, mostly with a pub stop for lunch on the longer walks. There is often a choice of short and longer walks on Sundays
The group is a member of Ramblers who work to promote walking for pleasure, health, leisure for everyone, of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, in towns and cities as well as in the countryside. We want Britain to be a place where people choose to go walking, contributing to their health and well being and supporting a more sustainable way of life.
We offer practical support to get people walking, and to sustain and increase the amount of walking they do, in a variety of ways:
through practical projects especially targeting people new to walking or who could most benefit from doing more exercise. For example Ramblers co-ordinate national networks of health walks schemes and deliver walking programmes in community settings.
through providing organised, led walks, including more than 38,000 walks a year led by Ramblers volunteers across Great Britain through our network of Areas and Groups, ranging from short urban strolls to challenging highland hikes.
through helping people navigate the walking environment by promoting and researching high quality walking routes, from our extensive and growing online library of routes, Ramblers Routes, to our longstanding work to establish high quality signed trails on the ground.
through providing walking information both online and in print, with a wealth of authoritative practical advice for walkers at all levels drawing on decades of experience and expertise.
If you'd like to explore your local countryside, or just get fit in a sociable atmosphere, join us for a led walk - we'll work out the most interesting route in advance. Our numbers on a walk vary from a handful to over 30. Our walks are more picturesque than the gym: walking through the Kent countryside is a truly special way to spend a few hours. From the wide skies of Romney Marsh to the hills and downlands of Folkestone and Dover; picturesque Elham and Alkham valleys; rich farmlands and orchards around Sandwich, Deal and Hythe. The area we cover is beautiful and historic.
Why not try walking with us? You'd be very welcome to come on a couple of walks without any obligation to join the Ramblers.
