Fantastic Success of Walking Festival

Over 500 people enjoy the return of a Walking Festival in Rotherham after 9 years.

  • Walks were between 5 and 10 miles in Rotherham and Dearne Valley area, taking in some of the spectacular parks and woodlands, green spaces and history the area has to offer
  • On Friday October 13th there was a 5 mile walk round Thybergh Reservoir and Ravenfield Ponds dedicated to the memory of Frank Faries at which 121 people took part and this was lead by Beryl, Frank’s wife. A fantastic turn out and tribute to Frank.
  • There was a total of 3500 miles walked by 500+ participants including many from outside the area
  • We are grateful for the support from Area Ramblers Group and several departments of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council who contributed to the success.                                
  • The Festival was supported and financed by the Ramblers organisation
  • £316 was raised for the Countryfile initiative to Ramble for Children in Need

Photographs and video taken on the walks can be viewed on the Group Photos page.

We would like to say thank you to all the walk leaders, marshals, organisers and of course those who took part on the walks.

Following the trip to Llandudno in April, Brenda and I recently followed the shorter walk route from Beddgelert. I took some video footage which may bring back memories for those enjoyed the walk earlier. Go to
