Walking is an excellent way to enjoy our beautiful countryside, fresh air, good company and great exercise at the same time. Monmouth Rambling and Hillwalking Club meet in Glendower Street car park for our regular Sunday walks. The walks are usually somewhere between 6 -8 miles, some may be less. We aim to have a longer more energetic walk on the first Sunday of the month. We stop for a coffee break around 11 o’clock and a lunch break hopefully with a view. We are a friendly group and welcome new members. We have a small membership subscription but prospective members may try us out with up to three taster walks Suitable footwear and outdoor clothing are essential. Please note that walkers are responsible for their own safety and take part at their own risk. We encourage lift sharing and there is a small contribution towards fuel cost The meeting time at the car park will vary each week depending on the distance to the walk start which is usually within forty minutes from Monmouth.
