The Ramblers

Derbyshire Times : 25 June
(Poolsbrook walking is on hold at the present time)

The summer walks programme can resume from 1 July if the numbers on each walk don’t exceed six and where the leader does some preliminary work, including preparing a risk assessment.

The coronavirus situation can change rapidly and it is essential to check Walksfinder details immediately prior to an official walk.

Leading Group Walks under current guidance

Some of our remaining walks in the summer programme may not occur for various reasons but are still there in case guidance changes and they can proceed as originally intended.

Under government guidelines a group of up to six individuals can meet up privately for exercise if they observe the ‘social distancing’ rules.

Lathkill Dale (24 June)

The latest full information from Ramblers Central Office is at Ramblers guidance

There is a selection of 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.

The Urban Right of Way

Urban Rights of Way Responsibilities

What is the longest rights of way walk in our area (without using roads or retracing steps) ?

Unless you know better, the answer seems to be the 5.6 miles from Holbeck Close on Brimington Road in Chesterfield to Hall Lane near Barrow Hill – via the Rother and the Chesterfield Canal.
(12 continuous footpaths, varying from 0.024 of a mile to 1.454 of a mile).
It is possible to walk 10 miles from Holbeck Close to Killamarsh with only a slight right of way interruption in Staveley.
