Outdoor Group

A friendly and welcoming local walking group whose members organise walks, weekends away, cycling and a wide range of other social activities.

Who we are:

Gloucestershire Outdoor Group is a social walking group which offers walks, weekends away and a wide range of other outdoor activities. Our members are people who like to be part of and contribute to a social group.

Members are expected to offer events on the programme for all to enjoy and we plan the programme every three months.

What we do:

Our activities are organised to fit around working commitments. Events include weekend and weekday walks, and weekends to cottages, bunkhouses and camping in the Summer months. On Summer evenings we also have shorter walks. The group has also been known to venture off on walking trips to Europe, organised by individuals.

The group was started in 1952 and currently has over 80 members.


When walking with the group you will simply need suitable kit and sufficient food and drink for the type of walk and weather conditions.
If in doubt, the walk organiser will be able to advise.
