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 over thirty years old 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 150 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. Occasionally there is a Weekday Walk, please consult the website and or walks programme.
There is usually an annual Coach Ramble and weekends away. Last year we had a holiday in Tenerife and in Dufton. In previous years we have been to Spain, Mallorca, Poland, The English Riviera and The South Downs, not to mention countless weekends in The Lake District and The Yorkshire Dales. This year we are going to Ilfracombe for six days in September and four days in Hawes in June.
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 and The Carlton Park to name the most recent.
We meet on the first Thursday of the month at 19.30 in The Roundwood Pavilion, Rawmarsh and enjoy talks, film shows and games nights. Our monthly raffle is used to support local charities such as The Edale Mountain Rescue, The Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Bluebell Wood.
We have strong links with Ramblers.
