Welcome to the Kibworth Rambling Group Website

We are a walking group based around the Kibworth villages but welcoming members from further afield.

The club is run by volunteers to promote the enjoyment of the countryside, rambling and related social activities, enhancing members well-being through exercise and friendship.

We celebrated our 25th anniversary in 2017, and in January 2022 there were 120 members on our books.

We arrange two walks a week on a Wednesday for most of the calendar year.  The walking programme comprises of full-day walks of between 8 and 12 miles and half-day walks of usually between 4 and 7 miles.  The number of participants vary but each walk might be made up of around 15 - 25 walkers.  A programme of forthcoming walks can be found on our Future Walks page.

We endeavour to organise annual spring and autumn walking holidays, as well as various other social events.  We are a friendly group of walkers who welcome and encourage new members.  Why not get in touch and join us for a trial walk or two?

Club History

Our rambling group started in 1992, when Bert and Lois Harrison invited residents of the local community of Kibworth to their monthly walk.  Bert's widow is now the KRG President.  Bert worked, with the support of Leicestershire County Council, to re-establish and mark out the footpaths, bridleways and by-ways around Kibworth and its neighbouring villages.  This work was the prelude to the extremely useful 'yellow post' marking on footpaths in Leicestershire.
