Join a walk

How do I join a walk?

Coach Rambles take place on Sundays, usually every two weeks. There are three rambles of different lengths to suit walkers of all abilities. There is a long walk of around 10-12 miles, a medium walk of around 7-9 miles, and a short walk of around 5-6 miles. Coach rambles usually take place in the Peak District or Derbyshire, but occasionally move further afield. Use of a coach permits rambles to be point-to-point rather than circular. Walkers need to bring a picnic lunch which is usually eaten at a convenient stopping point decided by the ramble leader. We recommend that you wear a face covering on the coach but it is not compulsory.

Places on coach rambles must be booked in advance. Details of how to book are given in the newsletter. Bookings should be made as early as possible (up to two weeks in advance). There is a charge of £12 (paid in cash) for most coach rambles to cover the cost of hiring the coach, and this is collected on the coach on the return journey. For rambles further afield, the charge may be higher, but this is notified in the details of the walk in the newsletter. The club reserves the right to make a charge for last minute cancellations to cover any losses incurred.
The coach picks up at County Hall in West Bridgford (where free parking is available) 9am, then the centre of Nottingham, Maid Marian Way at the bus stop on the left going North (just round the corner from Mount Street) at 9.15am, and then on the A610 by the Nuthall Pub 9.25am, opposite to Phoenix Park tram terminus (where free parking is also available on the slip road). The pick-up point required should be stated when booking. An optional pick-up point is also available in Keyworth Market Square 8.40am and Tollerton if required, but this must be arranged in advance when booking. Pick up times and places may vary. See the newsletter for any amendments for particular walks.

Car/Public Transport Rambles:  take place on Wednesday mornings, usually twice per month. These rambles have a circular route, starting and finishing at the same place, where parking is available. The rambles usually take place closer to Nottingham, but sometimes go a little further afield. The rambles vary in length depending on the ramble organiser. Lunch may be a picnic lunch but mostly a pub lunch at the end of the walk. Attendance on these rambles does not usually need to be pre-booked, but it is advisable to contact the club to give us some idea of numbers. Contact details for each walk will be in the newsletter. Walkers need to arrive at the start point at least 10 minutes before the stated time.
