Walking in Nottinghamshire
Welcome to the Nottinghamshire Area Ramblers.
Nottinghamshire has a very varied landscape traversed by an excellent path network – from the stilton cheese Wolds of south Notts to the carr lands of Misson in the far north of the county. And from the Trent Vale across to the limestone gorges of Pleasley Vale and Cresswell Crags, by way of the clay lands with their Dumbles and Sherwood Forest with its sandy shroggs,
We even have our own long-distance path - the 105 mile Robin Hood Way (www.robinhoodway.com). Numerous Country Parks have been created from our industrial heritage. There truly is something for everyone in our beautiful county,
Through the amazing work of our volunteers, we campaign to protect and grow this path network so everyone can enjoy access to our much-loved countryside. We also support our local walking Groups so they can provide a variety of walks and other social activities for you to join.
Our friendly walking community
Our members campaign to keep open the rights of way in Nottinghamshire, and submit claims for paths to be added to our local definitive maps. We work together with a coalition of different users - cyclists, horse riders, disabled users, local communities - to strengthen our case. We have MPs, councillors and the media supporting us. Contact us if you would like to know more about being involved with this essential work - you will be very welcome.
We also support 14 friendly Groups offering a wide selection of walks catering for different locations, ages and abilities. The Groups also have social activities and walking holidays, providing a chance to make new friends, have fun and get fit at the same time.
See the links to the Groups below and details of the extensive programme of walks in Nottinghamshire and neighbouring counties. Hope to see you on a walk soon!
