Keswick Rambling Club was formed in 1954 and provides a regular programme of walks throughout the Lake District and Cumbria. Our aim is to enjoy the spectacular scenery our region has to offer in a relaxed and friendly group. We are open to new members living all or part of the time in Cumbria and our subscription is currently £5 per year. The Club offers up to four levels of walks fortnightly on Wednesdays and Sundays, with car sharing to the start. Our walks are led by members who do not have specific qualifications or technical expertise and members walk at their own risk.
There are four grades of walk (approximate guidelines depending on weather, time of year, etc):
- A – 8 to 10 miles with 2500/3000 feet of ascent;
- B – 6 to 8 miles with 1500/2000 feet of ascent;
- B- – 6 miles with 1500/1600 feet of ascent; and
- C – various gentle, shorter and lower level walks.
