Welcome to the website of the St Francis of Assisi Catholic Ramblers Club. 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.
