Comberton Ramblers was founded in 1974 by a group of local families that wanted to ensure that footpaths were maintained in a useable form, while also gaining the pleasure of walking in the countryside.

Even in the first year the club was venturing beyond the borders of Cambridgeshire, with reference made to planning a walk in Thetford Forest, though this did not eventually happen that year.

Bill Rossiter who was one of the founders of the Club, walked with the Club well into his 80s. He wrote some poems about the club and its members and this is an example.
The Club has been walking enthusiastically ever since and has even organised some away weekends to exotic locales such as the Peak District.
