The Railway Ramblers' as you may gather from the title
is a club that likes to explore disused railway lines. They organise walks
throughout the country, for people of varying ages and abilities, usually
on disused railways, although sometimes they explore old canals and,
occasionally, even Roman roads. They are not, however, a high-powered
hiking club concerned mainly with clocking up the miles but are more
interested in finding what remains of our industrial heritage, in good
company, and ideally with a pleasant pub stop for lunch and yes there is a
very active Yorkshire Group.
