Welcome to the web site of the Gedling and Dukeries branch of The Ramblers. We
are a local group of the national Ramblers organisation and we organise a range of walks to suit all abilities throughout the year.
If you are interested in walking you are very welcome to come and join us as a visitor either alone or with friends. Just turn up and
introduce yourself to the walk leader. For walks over 7 miles you will need to bring a packed lunch. After you have had a good look around
these pages, we hope you will be motivated to come on one of the walks listed on our programme. We are a friendly and helpful bunch of people
of a wide age range and promise you a warm welcome.|
Temporary path closures|
Rights of way between West Burton and Cottam Power Stations will be closed from the 27th

Sunday Start Locations / Tea / Lunch Breaks|
Can I remind walk leaders and all members attending a walk of the following :-
1 - If starting a Sunday walk from a Public House the walk leader has spoken to the landlord
(not a member of the bar staff) and has asked permission to use his or hers car park on that day.
Sundays are one of the busiest days of the week for pubs and we as a group should not be using
their car park without permission.
2 - At any break on a A , B or C walk can I also I remind members not to sit on cafe and garden
centre chairs unless you are purchasing refreshments from that establishment.
