L&DR are back in action
We were very pleased when Government rules were relaxed last March to allow organised group walks to resume in a covid-safe way. We have had more good news from the Ramblers Association that, following further easing of the rules, the size of groups on our walks is now unrestricted provided we continue to follow the guidance on safe walking. Whilst walk leaders may still decide to set their own limit on the size of group they are comfortable leading, we hope to see as many of you as possible out enjoying the countryside together and each other’s company.
Please see our latest programme of walks by clicking the PROGRAMME tab. We hope to see you on one of these soon.
Liphook and District Ramblers is a friendly group of people who love walking together in the countryside. In Liphook, we are fortunate to live surrounded by many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Sites of Special Scientific Interest. so are really spoiled for choice!
Sometimes, we have as many as four walks programmed in a week. There are short walks (4-5 miles) every Tuesday morning, usually starting from a pub, where walkers have the option of adjourning afterwards for a coffee or light lunch . On summer Wednesdays, there are short walks taking advantage of the longer evenings to explore local beauty spots. On Saturdays and Sundays, there is a varied programme of short and longer walks, typically 5-7 or 9-12 miles in length, although a few are longer.
Liphook is close to the boundary of three counties, Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex, so we attract members from across county boundaries and explore the varied terrain of all three. The South Downs, Surrey’s lowland heath (now recognised as one of the world’s rarest habitats) and Hampshire’s beautiful rivers and villages all feature in our programme. If this sounds like your scene, you are welcome to come along on a few walks to find out if membership is for you.
