Welcome to Alton Ramblers website
We run regular walks in the Alton area during the week, on Sundays and, in the summer, in the evening. The weekday walks are on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. One week there are two, offering the opportunity to do a short one (up to 5 miles) or a longer one (up to 10 miles). The following week, there is a medium length walk from 5 to 7 miles. The Sunday walks vary from about 10 miles to 12 or sometimes 14. So there is plenty to choose from.
We are a friendly group so do come along to enjoy a sociable walk in the beautiful countryside of Hampshire.
If you click on any of the up and coming walks in the box to the left, you will find more information, together with a map showing the location of the start.

Hampshire’s countryside Forum: Come and have your say
The Hampshire Countryside Access Forum includes a number of interest groups from landowners, farmers, councillors and rural business owners, to walkers, horse riders, carriage drivers, cyclists and motor vehicle users.
The cross-section of views helps ensure the needs of all groups are taken into account when countryside access advice is given to members of the public, developers and a range of organisations including Hampshire County Council, Portsmouth and Southampton City Councils.
The statutory Local Access Forum for Hampshire (excluding the New Forest and South Downs) Southampton and Portsmouth is required under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000.
Members need to attend four meetings per year as well as task group sessions between full meetings. They need a good knowledge and understanding of at least one countryside viewpoint, but must also be able to recognise the validity of others' views. It is also expected that members actively seek the views of the interest group they represent.
