Ramblers National Walkabout Britain Festival
26 May - 3 June 2018
The 'Ramblers' are promoting a festival of walks around Britain, in an effort to get more people out walking in our wonderful countryside.
All Ramblers groups have been asked to take part and put forward walks, with the theme of Hidden Gems, it could be view, a building, a monument or something that is not normally seen by the public and which can only be seen on foot.
For our part, we have three walks we hope will tempt those who are interested in taking up an outdoor activity, they are free and open to all, members and non-members alike. So why not join us on one of these walks?
Details are on the side panels of this page.

Sunday 3 June

Mend our mountains appeal (Great Ridge)
Thanks to a magic combination of accessibility and spectacle, the Peak District’s Great Ridge is officially one of the most popular and well-trodden hill walks in Britain. But those numbers are taking their toll on the fragile path along its length.
