Walking in and around Doncaster
Doncaster Ramblers have had a programme of Tuesday and Saturday walks, mostly between eight and eleven miles in length, for about 30 years. These walks vary from walks local to the Doncaster area like Tickhill, Sykehouse or Askern, to walks in the Derbyshire Peak District, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and West Yorkshire. We also have a programme of Thursday morning walks of about 2 - 3 hours. All the walks are led by Ramblers leaders, and we always have a backmarker.
Most of us take a flask for a hot drink mid-morning, followed by a packed lunch, usually in the vicinity of a pub or a cafe.
Take a look at the photo gallery on our site to get inspired.
Joining our walking community
We are an active Group with nearly 230 members. With such a good number, the workload can be shared out and there are many eager volunteers willing to lead walks and arrange other activities. Newcomers are always welcome and can try three walks with us before joining. People who have joined us invariably comment on the friendliness of the group!
All our walks are listed on our website. This includes all the meeting arrangements for walks, distances, difficulty and a contact number for the walk leader, plus useful information about the group for newcomers.
