We are a Group of the Ramblers based on the two sea side towns of Teignmouth (pronounced 'Tinmouth') and Dawlish in South Devon where we have the benefit of easy access to walking the South West Coast Path, the rolling hills of Devon and the relative wilderness of Dartmoor.
You are welcome to join us for a couple of walks as a taster after which we ask you to join the Ramblers.
Why Join Us?
We treasure our right to access the countryside and frequently campaign and assist in maintenance to keep old rights of way open and to gain as much access to the countryside as is reasonably possible.
We believe in respecting the land and its owners our maxim being to take only memories and leave only footprints.
We cater for most abilities with long and short walks on Sundays. Generally we walk for pleasure, exercise and fellowship with the added pleasure of experiencing ever changing scenery and a diversity of flora and fauna.
Since the beginning, T & D Ramblers have held a number of social events - dinners, barn dances, skittle evenings, quizzes and general fun evenings. We also organise group walking holidays both at home and abroad
In the long days of summer, we offer short walks on Wednesday evenings that end at local hostelries.
We also arrange short (3 to 4 mile) Tea Walks on the first Saturday each month (except January). These are for walkers who like a flatter, slower walk with tea (or coffee) and cake at the end.
These activities, combined with our Walks Programme, means that membership of the Group is a good way to make new friends and to get and remain fit.
If you are looking for a healthy new hobby then rambling is really good for both physical and mental health. It is far less expensive and much more rewarding then joining a gym!
We have a membership of approximately 150 - and we have an average of 15/20 persons on most of our Sunday walks.
You do not need to be an ardent campaigner of ramblers' rights as we equally welcome people who merely enjoy walking in the countryside. You can quietly enjoy the suroundings or join in the conversation en route.
So whether you want to walk with us or help protect the paths and the countryside, there is a place for you as a member of Teignmouth & Dawlish Ramblers.
