Casual Ramblers – and we’re off!


Welcome to Casual Ramblers!


We’re going to be bringing together a selection of walking routes, reports and photos for people who want to get out and explore their local areas but who don’t have the time, equipment or inclination to spend a whole day in the great outdoors. Much as we admire traditional ramblers, a Casual Rambler is less likely to own a compass, more likely to own an iPhone with maps. We are less likely to drink out of a flask and more likely to find a pub or a tea room and have a cake while we’re at it.

These will be fun walks which are suitable for couples, families, and friends and which require nothing more than a sturdy pair of shoes and a spirit of adventure! We’re aiming for all the walks listed on this site to be no more than 10km (6ish miles) and achievable in anything from half an hour for the short ones to a couple of hours for a leisurely stroll.

We’re going to be testing the walks out too – mainly in South Yorkshire and Warwickshire because that’s where we’re from – and we’ll post pictures and reports. We’d love you to get involved in your local regions and help us out too. Please feel free to send us your stories, pictures, favourite casual walking routes etc and we’ll put those up too.

Happy Casual Rambling!
