Welcome to the Havering and East London Ramblers

Havering & East London Ramblers are a friendly group of people who enjoy walking and, some say, talking. We are based in the Romford, Hornchurch, Upminster Harold wood,Rainham areas as well as Barking and Dagenham and East London, and are part of 'Ramblers'.

Our walks take place on Tuesday, Saturday, which are usually graded 'leisurely' so most people can join in, with longer walks on Sunday. In the summer there are also evening walks.  After each walk there is opportunity to relax in a local public house and have a meal and a drink in the company of friends. You will find details of our walks on the 'Our walks' page. There is no need to book, just come along to the start point and introduce yourself to the walk leader. You will be most welcome. If you want to have a chat before you come along just phone 07583 532 309 and find out more, or e mail haveringeastlondonramblers@gmail.com

Communications Feedback - New Web Site Layout 

Thank you to every body who took part in the Communications review. 

As a result of the review and analysis of the numbers visiting various pages some minor tweaks have been introduced. If you are worried about privacy, I know how many times a page has been visited, but not who has visited.

The page ' Our walks' is the most popular page after 'home page'. It has been moved up the menu to the second position after home page. An unexpected result of the review was that a significant percentage wanted the Old walks kept available.  

A new page 'Previous walks' has been introduced, and will be found further down the menu. Once a month is finished it will be moved to 'Previous walks'. This means that the current month is always the first one in 'Our Walks'.

Photo Gallery is the third most popular, but gets only a third of the number of 'hits' as  'Our Walks'.

'Walking with Ramblers' contains Statutory information and other items of interest.

The other pages are reference information and receive a smaller number of visits.

By Convention 'Contact Us' is the final item.

Guestbook has been removed. It had generated only one response since introduction. General enquires come via the 'contact us' page or direct to the e mail address, or mobile phone.

You will notice the layout and content of the pages  has remained unaltered.


Social Events

Regularly we enjoy an evening meal together at a local pub, and of course a 'Christmas Lunch'.. Have a look in '
Forthcoming events' for more details.

We look forward to seeing you.

The Walking Partnership


 We are part of the Walking Partnership run by Ramblers Worldwide Holidays. Ramblers Worldwide Holidays organise Walking Holidays all over the world. Members of the group who have been on their holidays say they are very good. 

If you book your holiday with them, mention that you are a member of Havering East London Ramblers and RWH donate money to us, which we use to promote our walks. Have a look at their website

And if you fancy something a little different to a walking holiday then follow the link to RWH site and then look at their sister organisation holidays. Equally good quality.
