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.

 

P1050535 On 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, 21st June

To celebrate the longest Tuesday of the year Dianne Scolari led us on this new, longer walk through the countryside to the east of Newark. Thirty of us met in the pretty village of Winthorpe and set off across lush fields to Barnby in the Willows before returning through Newark via Balderton. We had two picnics on the way before a late, brief pub stop. The weather was lovely and we all enjoyed the open spaces, varied countryside and usual chatter! Thanks to Dianne for planning and leading the walk and to Alan for efficient backmarking. DB

Maintenance

Three kissing gates in one session!  What a team!  

Eight of our members, plus Stuart from the DMBC Rights of Way Dept., recently installed three kissing gates in one session in the Thorpe in Balne area of Doncater.  The start time was 9.30, as usual, but the finish time was 2.00.  Wendy provided sponge cake and ice cream!

We have 20+ maintenance volunteers, who do a session on a Wednesday morning every month or so.  Tony Marsh liaises with Stuart regarding what needs to be done, Tony organises the timber, which DMBC pay for.  We provide the skilled labour!  If you'd like to join them, please let Tony know (07796 206376).
