Stone Ramblers celebrated the Ramblers Association’s 80th anniversary with a 6-mile walk and indoor picnic at Maer Village Hall on Sunday May 31st. Three years after the 1932 mass trespass on Kinder Scout, Britain’s walking charity was set up on January 1st 1935 to protect and expand the places people love to walk.
Britain’s network of public paths remains an invaluable part of its heritage and Ramblers campaign to maintain and expand that network to give the general public access to the countryside. The Ramblers Association’s next goal is the opening of a continuous 3,000 mile path around the English coast.
Stone Ramblers now have an information stand at Stone Farmers market. For more information about their twice-weekly walks, social events and holidays visit their website www.stoneramblers.com
