USING THE NEW RAMBLERS "WALKSFINDER"
Some people have found that the new Ramblers 'WalksFinder' facility is harder to use than the old one. There is Help information available on the web page, but I find this is a bit long-winded.
At the middle top of the new screen, I change the distance to Within 50 miles
Your screen may have a large Map displayed. I find this map is difficult to use, so I click on the
Group Walks tab.
This replaces the map with a readable list of walks.
Now I choose the Date Range that I want. You can either type the dates directly into the date boxes, or click on the date box and a pop-up calendar will be displayed which you can select from. I usually make the start and end date the same to narrow the search.
You will probably still have dozens of walks listed, so the next step will really narrow it down. Click on the Suitability box on the middle right of the screen, then tick No car needed box.
You should now have a smaller manageable list of walks to choose from.
You may wish to search for walks for a specific Ramblers group.
To do this, click on the Walks run by box on the bottom right. First select the Area and then you can select a specific Group. e.g.
Note that ‘South Bank’ group is part of the ‘Inner London’ area.
Other areas you may be interested in are ‘Surrey’ (includes Kingston and Richmond group), 'Hertfordshire & North Middlesex' ( includes North London & South Herts and Finchley & Hornsey group), 'Kent' (includes Bromley group)..
I hope this helps.
