We are one of the smallest Ramblers groups in Nottinghamshire with approximately 80 members. Our group walks usually attract about a dozen participants, making walking with us a very pleasant and friendly experience. Visitors are always very warmly welcomed, and you can ‘try us out’ for up to three walks before deciding whether or not to join the Ramblers.
Walking in and around Worksop
Our programme offers walks on most Sundays and alternate Thursdays. We have a mixture of walk grades ranging from easy to moderate plus. Most of our walks are between 7 and 9 miles and very rarely exceed 10 miles.
Most of our walks are in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, and some are even as far afield as Lincolnshire, Staffordshire and Leicestershire. We love to explore new routes and learn about the history and other interesting facts about an area. Very often, we will finish the day with a drink in a pub.
You do not need to book to join our walks, but it is advisable to contact the walk leader (contact details are given for each walk) before the walk to ask any questions about parking arrangements, what to expect and to let him/her know that you are coming.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time shown in our listing to give yourself time to get booted up and ready to walk. Always bring a packed lunch, a drink and waterproof gear.
To join our group simply register and choose Worksop Ramblers so that we can place you on our mailing list and send you the printed version of our walk programme.
As a member of the Ramblers, not only will you be eligible for discounts from suppliers of walking gear and equipment, but you will also receive a quarterly magazine and have access to the Ramblers App and the Ramblers online routes library.
Plus, you’ll be part of the driving force behind preserving and improving the paths, tracks and trails we all love.

We encourage our members to get involved with volunteering by leading group walks. Training and support is provided free of charge by the Ramblers. Please let us know if you are interested in leading a group walk.
We also encourage our members to be pro-active in reporting any significant footpath issues that they come across to the relevant local authority. This could include any issues that make the path dangerous or inaccessible for members of the public to use.
