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.

On the seDSCN4101cond 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 meet at the start point. 

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.

Ramblers is not only about walking. Our volunteers monitor the Rights of Way in Doncaster (there are about 590, the number changes slightly from year to year as new paths are created, and some extinguished) to identify problems and our maintenance teams assist DMBC in building and repairing stiles, kissing gates and bridges, and clearing overgrown paths. Ramblers Volunteers also attend meetings of the DMBC Public Rights of Way Forum where wider issues concerning the network are discussed. Please see our Volunteers section for further details.

Walk Reports

Tuesday 12th December - Xmas Lunch
Around 40 of us met in the pub car park on this perfect, crisp, winter morning for a short ramble prior to our annual lunch. After much swapping of cards, greetings and hugs we were soon on our way and heading over gentle slopes towards the familiar landmarks of Wentworth in the distance, passing frozen lakes and hardy farmstock. Morning coffee was at the war memorial in Wentworth and we were soon heading back towards Keppel's Column and the warm embrace of The Bay Horse. Boots were quickly swapped and we assembled in the beautifully presented pub for our pre-ordered lunches. The food was very good and the service cheerful and obliging. After short but very heartwarming speeches from David and Bob who both celebrated the ongoing success of Doncaster Ramblers, the raffle was drawn with much cheering and hilarity. All in all, an excellent day was had by all. Thanks to Peter and Hilda for planning and managing the lovely walk and a massive thank you to Hilda (and Bet) for all their hard work in making the occasion such a great success. (And most people went home with at least one raffle prize!) DB
