About Dearne Valley Group's Walks Programme

This information about our walks may prove helpful, especially if you are new to walking with a group.

Grades are Easy, Moderate or Strenuous

During extreme or inclement weather you are advised to check with the walk leader ahead of each walk, as to whether or not they will go ahead. We recommend that you bring a drink on all walks and a packed lunch for walks which start during the morning.

The mileages quoted are the best estimate of the actual distance by the walk leader. However walks may turn out to be slightly longer or shorter than stated.

If using stiles is a problem for you, please contact the walk leader ahead of the walk to check whether the walk has any.

We welcome well behaved dogs and their responsible owners on our walks. Dogs must, however, be kept on short leads when appropriate, and ALWAYS put on leads when requested by the walk leader.

Finding the start of your walk.  Start and meeting points include nearest postcode and an Ordnance Survey grid reference. Use postcodes with care: in rural areas the nearest postcode may be some distance from the actual start point.

​Car Sharing.  You will occasionally see that we recommend car sharing on a particular walk due to limited parking spaces.  We do not run a formal car sharing scheme but as members get to know each other, we expect them to liaise with each other ahead of the day of the walk as appropriate to make their arrangements.

Please note that some photos taken while on our walks may be used to publicise the group on the internet and in the local and national press. If you don't wish to be photographed, please make your wishes known to the photographer.
