posted 15 Dec 2020, 07:27 by Ralph Burtonshaw   [ updated 15 Dec 2020, 07:27 ]


Whether you’re organising your own walk with friends and family, or joining a Ramblers group walk, the travel restrictions are the same: you should not travel to or from Tier 3 (Very High Alert) areas, including neighbouring Tier 3 areas, either to start your walk or as part of your walk.

As long as you stick to the travel restrictions, the following activities are possible in all tiers:

  • Walking with family & friends: You can walk outdoors with up to six people from six households. 
  • Ramblers group walks: Covid-secure organised group walks can take place in all tiers, for up to 30 people in line with UK government guidelines. Please check with your local group to find out what walks are taking place.
  • Ramblers path maintenance: Covid-secure activities can restart – please check with your local group.
  • Other Ramblers activities: Covid-secure activities can restart – please check with your local group. AGMs must be held online.

Thanks  to those who came along for the first walk since COVID regulations allowed for up to 30 people. We had lovely weather for it.

For anyone who is nervous about the extra work involved in leading a walk under these new regulations I can assure you that there is not really any problem.
The risk assessment form is nothing but common sense and questions asked are those which I would hope that every walk leader asks anyway such as "can the group cross the road in safety"
As for the register there is a template form provided and I just asked the walkers to fill it in during the coffee break. All that is required is name and contact number. The form will then be destroyed after 21 days.

If anybody needs further information on leading a COVID free walk them please contact me by e-mail ( or phone (07804294329)
