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.

 

DSCN2240On 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.

Volunteers wanted: 12th/19th October

Without a specific volunteer to monitor the Sykehouse square we have decided to ‘blitz’ the square with, hopefully, as many volunteers as possible. The plan is to meet up on the morning of 12th or 19th October, pair up, and then check the footpaths.  After checking, we’ll meet in a pub for a well-deserved lunch.

Please contact Wendy Atkinson, on 01302 533761 or atkinson.wendyann@gmail.com if you can help on either or both of the above dates.

Tuesday, 27th September, 2016 On Emley Moor With Tat! 

Pete Smith led this interesting walk in the Emley Moor area, with the famous mast visible for almost all of the time. The walk might better have been titled ‘A Walk of a Thousand Stiles’ (slight exaggeration) with many, many difficult stiles to cross - broken, at an angle, hard against a hedge that needed cutting…. We had the lot!  With 32 people climbing all these stiles it was a leisurely paced walk, in dry weather but with a hint of rain at times.  Lunch was at the famous 3 Acres restaurant, outside for packed lunches, inside for drinks. A good 10-walk, well led by Pete, well back-marked by Pete and Alison. DG
