Nottinghamshire Ramblers

Welcome to the Nottinghamshire Area Website of The Ramblers

You will be welcomed to try any walks for free, hopefully you might then want to become a member.

Broxtowe Ramblers
The Broxtowe Group of the Nottinghamshire Area of the Ramblers primarily covers the area of Broxtowe District Council. The Broxtowe Group membership hovers around the 300 mark, making us one of the largest groups in Nottinghamshire. Everybody is welcome to enjoy a comprehensive programme of walks and social events. We have an active walk programme with walks every Sunday and Wednesday, plus the occasional Saturday walk. We also have shorter Thursday evening walks during the summer months. We often have a coach walk which allows us to travel further a field and enjoy a linear walk. Popular annual events include a May Bank Holiday weekend away. We also have an active social calendar with evening events and day trips.


Gedling & Dukeries
Welcome to the web site of the Gedling and Dukeries branch of The Ramblers. We are a local group of the national Ramblers organisation and we organise a range of walks to suit all abilities throughout the year. If you are interested in walking you are very welcome to come and join us as a visitor either alone or with friends. Just turn up and introduce yourself to the walk leader. For walks over 7 miles you will need to bring a packed lunch. After you have had a good look around these pages, we hope you will be motivated to come on one of the walks listed on our programme. We are a friendly and helpful bunch of people of a wide age range and promise you a warm welcome.

Mansfield & Sherwood Walking Group of Ramblers
The local branch of Ramblers for Mansfield and the surrounding area. We organise rambles and other activities on behalf of The Ramblers. The branch area covers Mansfield, Mansfield Woodhouse, Rainworth, Sutton-in-Ashfield, most of Kirkby-in-Ashfield and parts of the surrounding area.

Newark Ramblers
The Newark Ramblers group was formed in 1971 and organises a walk almost every Sunday and Wednesday, chiefly in the local area. The walks vary in length from 4-10 miles, with the shorter walks being done at a leisurely pace which is ideal for new walkers. We also arrange coach trips for walking farther afield. Apart from walking, the group has a very active programme of social events throughout the year. Newark Ramblers is part of the national Ramblers Association, a charitable organisation dedicated to the preservation of our national network of public footpaths and to the encouragement of walking as a leisure activity. There are many advantages to being a member, including cut-price walking holidays, discounts on walking equipment and a free subscription to Walk magazine. 

Nottingham & Derby Walking Group - 20s & 30s group
We are a group of people aged between 20 & 40 (ish) who love to walk and socialise together. We have around 300 members and organise walks every single weekend of the year, and regular social events too. Come along and join us for a couple of walks and experience this fun and friendly group for yourself, or come to one of our regular pub meets and talk to us in person. Take a look around our website and feel free to contact us with any questions. NDWG has 2 objectives: Walking is our primary goal and our group (as you may have gathered already) spans both Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire and caters predominantly for people in their 20s and 30s. We welcome walkers of all abilities to join us on one of our many varied walks on offer. Our walks programme is available here. We have day walks every week, often with a choice of walks and weekends away once or twice a month. Socialising is fundamental to our group activities and our Social Programme offers socials every two weeks. The NDWG was set up in 1997 by Kevin Matthews and Sarah Rich who met on an overseas walking holiday in Alpbach, Austria and thought it would be a great idea to see a young people’s walking group set up back home. The NDWG membership has now increased to around 340 members, with the majority of us being active members. The group is a great way to explore the outdoors and meet new people. Our day walks regularly attract over 40 people (mostly over 2 walks) on a Sunday. We also offer walks on Saturday and on Wednesday evenings during the summer, as well as weekends away all over the UK (stopping over in a YHA or bunkhouse). We also offer less strenuous ‘New Start Walks’ aimed at people new to the group.

Nottingham Ramblers
This is where your journey begins to find great walks and company! The Nottingham Ramblers walk every Sunday. One week a coach takes us to Derbyshire, the next Sunday we walk locally. On local walks we car share (you don’t need to have a car) or use public transport (you will be surprised by the amount of lovely walks just a bus ride away). A choice of three or four walks 6-13 miles, gentle - to strenuous. Bear in mind that even a gentle walk in Derbyshire will requires more effort than a walk around your local park. There will be stiles, uneven paths and a few slopes. However if you are ‘Iron Man’ standard we can do that too !!!!

Rushcliffe Ramblers
Walks are held almost every Sunday. There are also midweek walks throughout the year; these are mostly short morning walks ending at a pub for lunch. Occasionally there may be a longer mid-week walk. Evening walks are held during the lighter nights and there is an occasional Saturday walk. We have also recently started a series of monthly local short walks (4-5miles) on Sundays, generally starting in the West Bridgford area. The length of walks varies from about 4 miles to 12 miles. The terrain can also vary. Some walks are gentle and easy whilst others are more strenuous. These latter walks are most likely to be in Derbyshire.

Southwell Ramblers
The Southwell Ramblers walking group is based in and around the Southwell area of Nottinghamshire and offers fortnightly Sunday walks throughout the year in Nottinghamshire and the adjoining counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. In the summer months we have short walks on alternate Friday evenings which usually end at a local pub. The Group also organises weekends away which give opportunities for walks further afield.

Vale of Belvoir
A small and friendly Group of the Nottinghamshire Area Ramblers Association based in the Vale of Belvoir.  Our varied programme offers weekly Sunday and monthly Wednesday walks and in June and July we have leisurely evening strolls often ending with a sociable drink at a pub. Many of our walks are in and around the Vale but we regularly travel further afield to Derbyshire and the Peak District and other East Midlands counties. This website complements the VBR weekly blog which mainly comprises photographs of our walks since January 2014 and weekends away in earlier years. In August every year, we have two longer walks on consecutive days in the Peak District to give members the opportunity of taking a weekend break there and to avoid excessive travel.  On this page are some images of the 2014 walks in the Dark Peak. And every September the Group spends a long weekend away.  On this page you can find photographs of trips to Keswick (2006), New Forest (2007), Hawes (2008), Whitby(2009), Cotswolds (2010), Settle (2011), Wooler (2012), Pickering (2013) and Teesdale (2014).

Worksop Ramblers
Worksop Ramblers was established 42 years ago and is based in Worksop and the surrounding area. We run a varied programme of walks across a wide area ranging from the Derbyshire Peak District in the West to the Linclonshire Wolds in the East.  Our programme includes walks most Sundays, a walk every other Thursday, Wednesday evening walks during the lighter Summer Months and two coach trip walks per year.  In addition we also offer one residential per year. Wirksworth walk We always meet in the car park opposite Worksop library but members are also free to meet at trhe official walk start point which the walk-leader will advise on if telephoned.
