Doncaster Ramblers


Welcome to Doncaster Ramblers

Doncaster Ramblers have over 200 members and we are part of the Ramblers, a national charity.

We provide walks on Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the year. These walks are usually of about 10 miles in length and vary in location from local walks starting from Thorne, Fishlake, Edlington and Epworth, etc, to Grindleford, Calver and Hathersage in the beautiful Peak District, to walks in the Castle Howard area, in the Wolds, as well as many more locations up to about an hour's drive away. These walks are for reasonably experienced walkers.


bardseyOn the second Thursday of every month there is a 7-8 mile walk in the local area, with members meeting at the foot of the escalator near the information point in Doncaster Transport Interchange at 9.45 am, or meeting at the start point.

These walks are an excellent way to explore your local area. 

In the Summer months there is a walk of about 5 miles in the local area every Wednesday evening, another excellent way to get to know your local area. Sometimes these walks finish at a pub or a fish and chips shop. 

Our walks are listed in the box on the left.  Click on them for more details, including the leader's phone number if you would like more information. 

There is also information about our walk categories, what to bring, etc.

Tuesday, 23rd August - Pompeii in a Day! 

Intrigued by the Roman walk title 32 of us turned up for the start at Bardsey Village Hall. After an initial cross examination by the local tennis club about parking there was an acceptance of our bona fides and we set off on our way. The route took us through woodland tracks and field sides around Bramham Park (which was hosting a music festival) and some proposed paths were therefore off limits. The coffee break was supplemented by the entertainment of fairground trucks attempting to enter the festival site. We subsequently travelled to the village of Thorner and onwards after lunch to Scarcroft, using the Leeds Country Way back to Bardsey. Thanks to Phil Overton for leading the walk and a welcome return to Tuesdays for Tony Marsh as back marker. Phil did explain the Roman significance of the area but was unsure if it was fact or fiction. At least Mary Beard can sleep easy in her bed tonight.
