Welcome to the Red Kite Ramblers Web Site
A walking club based in the North East of England
We Are 25 Years Old
Guess what? It is our birthday this year. We are 25 years old and if we had been out walking on the 16 January it would have been our birthday walk. It was on the 20 January 1996 that the club did its first walk along the Roman Wall from Housesteads to Greenhead. For the first few weeks, there was only one route but with numbers on the coach increasing the club started to put on more routes each time we went out. Oddly enough, on six occasions we went out on a Sunday in that first year. I do not think there is anyone left in the club that was on that first walk, but there are still quite a few members who joined during the first year.
You might have noticed from the image at the top of the page that we are preparing to restart the club with walk on the 11th September, our first after nearly eighteen months. An email has gone out to all the club members reminding them to start booking again but the club is still actively seeking new members so if you are looking for a walking club to join please use the form on the Contact Page.
