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, 26th July - Lathkill Dale 

Twenty one of us gathered in the pretty village of Monyash for a lovely anti-clockwise wise walk through open countryside to the famous Lathkill Hotel for our lunch stop (which conveniently coincided with the only shower of the day). This was unfortunate for the wedding party that had just arrived for photographs and lunch! Our afternoon walk back was through the dramatic scenery of Lathkill Dale with it's rich industrial heritage - the highlight of which was a climb down into an old pumping station with hand generated lighting. This was Kev's first time as leader and he had prepared thoroughly and led the walk expertly, with Richard as an efficient back marker. DB

Maintenance

Thursday, 6th July saw 11 members in the Thorpe in Balme/Kirk Sandal/hatfield area repairing a number of stiles and a long series of steps.  Tony M had worled out the logistics with Stuart Horrocks, from DMBC's Rights of Way Dept, so that each team had the tools and materials needed for their job.  A magnificent morning's work!
