Derbyshire Dales walkers take a break

One of our several active walking groups, Derbyshire Dales Walking is ideal for members who would like to walk in the gentler hills and valleys of Derbyshire and nearby locations.

We walk once per month, on the third Thursday, starting at a pub or cafe to which we return in time for lunch. We meet at 9.45am and set off at 10am, with the aim of finishing at 1pm. We allow around 20 minutes for coffee. The length of the walks is about 6 miles.

Walks are a little more challenging than those of Walking Group 2, with no specific restrictions on stiles, but we avoid steep and long ascents and scrambles.

The planning and leading of walks is shared between as many members as possible according to a rota, but it is up to individuals to decide if they wish to share in this task. You will be welcome just to come and walk.

If you would like to join us, please contact Group Leader Andrew D, providing your email and mobile phone number. As for all groups, you will also need to supply contact details for someone you would wish to be notified in the event of an emergency.

We do not necessarily cancel walks for inclement weather but cancel if extreme weather is forecast, such as in Met Office red and amber warnings.
