About Us

Alde Valley Ramblers is a very friendly and sociable group of the Ramblers’ based in the part of Suffolk Coastal District lying between the Rivers Blyth and Deben.  Click here for a list of the parishes in our territory.

Membership stands at about 130 which makes us rather small as groups go. We are also a fairly new group having been formed as recently as 1995.

Core activities are arranging led walks and doing some practical work to improve the rights of way network within our territory through our Footpath Working Party Group.

Our volunteers make representations about issues concerning problems with and proposed changes to the rights of way network, Open Access Land and the beauty of the countryside generally.

Our led walks are usually fortnightly on a Sunday but we sometimes lay on shorter ones in the summer evenings.  The walks vary in length from around 3 to 12 miles and in terms of ease are generally classified as being moderate. Non-members are very welcome to join a few of our walks on a trial basis.  There is normally no charge for joining a walk. 

The Ramblers is Britain's walking charity, working to safeguard the footpaths, the countryside and other places we go walking, and to encourage more people to take up walking.  To see a more detailed account of our work and more about the Ramblers nationally see
