The Newmarket & District group of the Rambler’s Association was formed in 1982. Due to the particular location of the town, which is in Suffolk but almost completely surrounded by Cambridgeshire, the group attracted members from both counties. The Newmarket group’s official catchment area extends along the western fringe of Suffolk and includes the expanding town of Haverhill.
Full and/or half day walks take place on Sundays throughout the year. Full day walks are usually 10 miles or more, while half day walks are around 5 miles in length. There is also a short walk of five to six miles every Wednesday morning, and often evening walks in the summer months.
The Newmarket Ramblers are a very friendly group and also arrange social activities and occasional short breaks and coach trips, which provide the opportunity to walk in a different area.
The group welcomes non-members who would like to give rambling a try but after you have joined us on a few walks we expect you to join the Association if you wish to continue.
