The Ramblers

Regrettably, owing to the coronavirus emergency, the group
walks programme has been suspended until June (or further notice)

Ramblers Central Office guidance        


Whilst social gatherings are not allowed during the coronavirus crisis, fresh air and exercise for individuals, taken locally, are still vital – subject to official guidance.

There is a selection of local walks on the Ramblers website at Ramblers Routes


In addition we have a sortable library of some of our walks undertaken in the last five years in a GPS Walk Library, many of them within our group area, circular or capable of adaptation.



The condition of local footpaths can be checked, and paths that are not recorded rights of way can be logged, in anticipation of the 2026 deadline

Curbar

Thirteen people and one dog took part in today’s 10 mile circular walk from Curbar crossroads via Barbrook Reservoir,
White Edge, Froggatt Edge, and the Wellington Monument.
Slight drizzle to start, and then a decent day until 15 minutes from the finish when the rain came.

Derbyshire Gritstone Way (3)

Leader: Val


Another leg of Derby Ramblers’ Gritstone Way, this time from Ambergate to Matlock.



A long stretch along the Cromford Canal ended with lunch at the High Peak Junction.
The hilly bit then began with a climb through Bow Wood to Riber, a drop down to Tansley, and a climb to catch the X17 bus for Chesterfield at Upper Lumsdale.
A group of ten on the walk.
Val is leading the Gritstone Way walks for free, but anyone eager to complete the full journey can sign up for a seven day HF Holiday scheduled for April.

Another walk along the popular waymarked trail commemorating GHB Ward – a local walking activist in the early 20th century and the founder of the influential Sheffield Clarion Ramblers.

The 11 mile walk passed his former house at Owler Bar on the outward leg over Totley Moor to Longshaw.
An afternoon return to Holmesfield via Smeekley Wood for 30 walkers on a fine day.
