Welcome to Doncaster Ramblers
Doncaster Ramblers have over 220 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 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 meet at the start point.
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.
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.
