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 appplies 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 two Sunday walks are as follows:
