ADVICE TO WALKERS 



  • Take special care when walking on roads. 

  • Do not approach farm animals unnecessarily. 

  • Keep an eye on the people behind and in front of you to ensure that the group keeps together.

  • Dogs must be kept under control at all times and put on a lead through farmyards, animals or growing crops. 

  • Do not consume your own food or drink on pub premises. Remove muddy boots or cover with plastic bags. 

  • Consider carrying a basic first aid kit. 

  • Wear suitable clothing and footwear. 

  • Lifts may be available for non car drivers. Please phone a committee member to enquire. 

  • Trains: Please check train times with National Rail Enquiries, 08457 48 49 50, www.nationalrail.co.uk 

  • Weather conditions. Walks normally take place whatever the weather, but if there have been Met. Office warnings that travelling may be hazardous, it is for the leader to decide whether the walk should go ahead. 

  • Though walking is inherently one of the safest outdoor activities, no activity is completely without risk and it is your responsibility to behave sensibly and to minimise the potential for accidents to occur.   

  • Any amendments to a walk are posted on the group website.


Post Codes

You can convert OS grid references to post codes (useful if you make use of a car sat nav to find the car park! A couple of websites to try are http://www.gridreferencefinder.com and http://www.nearby.org.uk  However, please note that some post codes cover a large area and that without reference to a map, the car parks may still be difficult to find!

Please also note that Postcodes for our walks programme already appear on the Ramblers website and on our page of the Kent Ramblers website. The postcodes are computer generated and are the nearest to the OS map reference. In a relatively unpopulated area start point for the walk could be miles from the nearest postal address. So reference to a map is essential.
