Group name: Vale of Belvoir
This group is a part of Nottinghamshire Area.
Ramblers Groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us so do get in touch and come along to one of our walks.
Vale of Belvoir Ramblers is a small and friendly group based in the Vale of Belvoir in south east Nottinghamshire. Our current programme offers weekly Sunday and monthly mid-week walks. In addition, in June and July, we offer leisurely Evening Strolls, often ending with a sociable drink at a pub.
Many of our walks are in and around the Vale but we walk further afield in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire with regular trips to the Peak District.
Call 01949 836042, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to our website at www.vbramblers.org for more details of our group’s activities. New walkers are always welcome to come on two or three walks to give us a try before joining.
In August every year, we have two longer walks on consecutive days in the Peak District to give members the opportunity of taking a weekend break there and to avoid excessive travel. On this link are images of the walks in the Dark Peak and White Peak from 2014 to the present.
And every September the Group spends a 3-day Weekend Away. On this link you can find photographs of trips to Keswick (2006), New Forest (2007), Hawes (2008), Whitby(2009), Cotswolds (2010), Settle (2011), Wooler (2012), Pickering (2013), Teesdale (2014), North Norfolk (2015) and Ludlow(2016), Church Stretton (2017), Malhamdale (2018), Dolgellau (2019), Selworthy (2020) and Bourton on the Water (2021).
The group have just completed a twelve-month programme of walks, the main difference from pre-covid years being that fewer walks have been made in the Peak District and planning has been on a month-by-month basis. We are well on the way however to going back to a six-month programme. No booking has been needed and there has never been a limit on numbers which have averaged 17 per walk. Social events will also resume and will include a 3-day trip to Derwent Water in September.
Our blog is updated weekly with photographs taken on every recent walk. Over four hundred routes are also available there to visitors as .gpx files, OpenStreetMap raster images or links to OS Maps.
