About Warminster Walkers
Warminster Walkers are a social walking group also promoting access to the countryside through organising a programme of regular walks.
Warminster Walkers (formerly Warminster and District Rights of Way Preservation Society) has been in existence for over 50 years and during that time has evolved from an organisation that was mainly engaged in promoting and preserving the public rights of way in Warminster and its nearby villages to a social walking group organising a programme of regular walks open to any one in the community, whilst retaining the objective of keeping the rights of way open, through walking many of these on a rotational basis over a 2 – 3 year period and reporting any path problems to the rights of way service.
We publish a set of seven circular walks for the Warminster area: these are available from the Warminster Information Centre. We regularly revise these walks to make sure they are kept up to date.
We are a community group with a constitution. We hold an annual general meeting every January and elect a committee to run the group and organise the walks programme. Our members generally take it in turns to lead the walks. Anyone new to leading walks will be offered help from an experienced leader to help them plan their first few walks.
