Walks throughout the stunning Peak District and beyond in good company


Welcome to the Rotherham Rambling Club

The Rotherham Rambling Club offers walks throughout the stunning Peak District and beyond in good company.

Why not join us?

You will be more than welcome.

The Rotherham Rambling Club is forty years old this year and is still going strong. It was formed in 1979, its purpose being to encourage an appreciation of the countryside in all its aspects and seasons, through the recreational medium of walking and associated activities.

We are an independent club with a membership of approximately 120 people, the cost a mere £6 annually.

We welcome new members as they are the way forward and also ensure that the Club continues to thrive.

We walk every Sunday and try to provide a choice of walks to meet most needs from the strenuous to the leisurely. Very occasionally there is a Weekday Walk, please consult the website and or walks programme.

There is usually an annual Coach Ramble and weekends away. We have had holidays abroad in Tenerife, mainland Spain, Mallorca, and Poland and at home in The English Riviera, The South Downs, Seahouses, Braemar, Ilfracombe and Weymouth not to mention countless weekends in The Lake District and The Dales. This year we are going to spend four days in The Cheviots in June and six nights on the island of Jersey in September.

We have an annual Christmas Lunch after a short walk in a variety of venues: Hellaby Hall, Whitley Hall, Tankersley Manor, The Burntwood Court Hotel, The Carlton Park and The Old Hall to name the most recent.

We have a variety of social events throughout the year, details of which are posted on this page of the website. Our raffles are used to support local charities such as The Edale Mountain Rescue, The Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Bluebell Wood.

We have strong links with Ramblers.
