Welcome to the website of the St Francis of Assisi Catholic Ramblers Club and we wish you a happy Christmas and New Year 2018. 

 

 The club has a walk every weekend, mainly on Sunday but occasionally on Saturday or Monday Bank Holidays.  All walks begin from a railway station and take place whatever the weather. So you need to always carry some rain gear with you and make sure to wear strong walking boots which provide a grip in muddy conditions. 

 

When going on a walk there is no need to book, just turn up at the station notified on the programme and make sure to allow time to queue at the ticket office - this applies especially in summer time and most especially at Victoria and Waterloo where there can be long queues of people heading to the south coast resorts.

 

Details of the next walk on Sunday 27 May 2018 are as follows: 

 

Sunday 27th May Leader: John Burbage (Landranger 186)

Meet: Waterloo 0840 for the 0900 train to Liss (Hants) (arr 1023)

Lunch: Selborne Arms, Selborne. A welcome return to this popular pub with reasonably priced food and local beers/ciders.

Tea: Possibly at Greatham or Liss

Distance: 13 very hilly miles through the countryside made famous by the Victorian naturalist Gilbert White. We may have the opportunity again to pick wild garlic en route

Fare: £18.55 Off-peak Day Return with Network Card. Look out for Southwest Train deals nearer the time.

 

This will be the last walk on the Spring 18  Programme. As soon as I receive the summer programme I will put it up on the website.

 

Previous programmes can be seen in the Programme Archive which now extends back to Summer 1991, most recent programmes first.
