Walking in East Staffordshire
We are a friendly group based in East Staffordshire and we enjoy walking throughout the year in all sorts of places and conditions. It's a great way of meeting and making new friends, getting outside to boost our health and happiness and seeing the beautiful countryside all around us.
We offer a range of walks from short local walks on Friday mornings to medium and longer walks on Wednesdays and Saturdays, which often venture into Derbyshire, Leicestershire and other parts of Staffordshire.
Our walking community
In addition to our walks, we organise social activities such as our annual buffet in March, weekends away and social evenings, including a skittles evening, fish & chip supper, Christmas lights walk, and Christmas lunches which usually follow a brisk walk to work up an appetite.
Recent holidays have included a longer weekend away on the Isle of Anglesey and a weekend based in Castleton. In 2022 we spent three days hiking from Ilam to Eyam on the Peak Pilgrimage and several days before Christmas in the Peak District.
You are very welcome to join us on a few of our walks, to see if this is for you, before you decide to join the Ramblers and you may also wish to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces in our area.
