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, 24th May - Around Old Brampton

Rolling hills of wildflowers, streams, great views, wooded valleys, a vintage car restorer (and his 3 cars) and a newly refurbished pub for lunch (first customers) were some of the highlights of this delightful walk through some often overlooked countryside to the west of Chesterfield. Around 30 of us found a variety of creative ways to reach the starting point with ample parking and clean toilets. Morning coffee on a hillside in the sun was a treat and lunch in the pub was enjoyed by all - especially those who bought the specially made cakes. Hilda Levine was an exemplary leader (taking over from a recovering Tony Marsh at late notice) and Elaine was an efficient back marker, A great day out, greatly enjoyed by everyone who came. Sorry you missed it Tony, but thanks for planning it. Get well soon. Best wishes also to Pete Charnley who is also recovering and would otherwise have been with us. We missed you both. DB

Thursday, 19th May - Tickhill

Our second shorter Thursday walk was a leisurely and fascinating walk in the countryside around Tickhill, looking at the historical landscape and following in the path of the Romans, Saxons and Normans. Was there also the odd Viking involved? As well as our leader we were joined by John Hoare of the Tickhill Residents Association, so we were imparted with considerable historical and local knowledge on our route. And the walking was enjoyable as well. Many thanks to leader David Gadd and back marker Rob Elvidge. MW.
