Brentwood Ramblers

There are 19 walking groups in Essex operating under the auspices of the Ramblers. Brentwood Ramblers has been in existence for more than 45 years and has long been one of the more successful ones. Its catchment area is formally defined by Brentwood Borough Council District but many members live outside this area and opt to join it and enjoy its activities.

Our walks programme extends to more than 200 walks a year. We walk half days every Saturday and Thursday; full days every Sunday and Tuesday of the year, as well as Wednesday summer evenings. Full day walks are generally of 10-12 miles and half days 5-6 miles. Many of the walks are in our local area but we do travel further afield into Essex, Kent, Hertfordshire and Suffolk. Coach walks to other areas, and weekends away complete our programme.

A principle objective of the Ramblers is to promote walking activities and to protect paths and rights of way. We work closely with the local authority to clear paths, repairing bridges etc, - this proves to be a surprisingly enjoyable as well as a very beneficial activity.

Another objective is simply to enjoy ourselves in the countryside and to engender a sense of fun and companionship in everything we do. Hopefully this arises spontaneously on our walks, but we do run a number of social activities to help to further this objective.

For a copy of our current programme, please use the following link : Brentwood Ramblers Walks Programme

Brindles Wood Resident's Association

The Brindles Wood Resident's Association was formed in 1995, primarily to defend a local wood from developers. Residents, together with Brentwood Council, have successfully resisted seven planning applications for Brindles Wood.

The Association now has a history of defending the character of the Brindles Wood area from many threats to its Green Belt landscape. It also seeks to improve transport and other facilities, to foster community relations, and to encourage an active interest in local affairs.

The committee comprises representatives from each road in the Association's area, who are in close touch with neighbours. This democratic structure allows a quick response to issues as they arise, and enables local people to be actively involved. The Association has 140 members.

The chairperson is Judith Hargreaves and the secretary is Ann Dettmar both of whom can be contacted via www.bwra.org or email.
