Clarion Discovery Walks


We have a week long programme of walks this autumn under the ‘Clarion’ banner.

Why ‘Clarion’ ?


Firstly to rekindle the spirit of
Sheffield Clarion Ramblers, who were the foundation walking group in this area.
They were established by GHB Ward of Holmesfield (the King of Ramblers) in 1900, who subsequently left substantial funds to the Ramblers and related charities.
Their walks programmes are historic pieces and well worth reading if only to see the range and distance undertaken in them- and the core educational basis because
‘a rambler made is a man (and woman) improved !’


Secondly
because this is a clarion call for the group, at a time of severe budgetary pressure on our county council, to increase our membership and support the Ramblers in their work in protecting and expanding our vital rights of way network.
‘Discovery’ because that is the theme of the walks. We want people to finish a walk thinking ‘I have never been there before, or I never knew that.’
In other words, as regular walkers know, there is far more to walking than just going for a walk.
Please participate in the walks, but in particular bring along friends, family, neighbours, etc who can be encouraged to join us.
