Welcome to the Sheffield Shamblers Walking Group
Do you enjoy walking but want to do this at a leisurely pace? Fed up with walking groups that want to beat the clock over the distance of the walk? Or maybe you are new to walking and fear that you won't be able to keep up with experienced walkers? Then come and join the SHEFFIELD SHAMBLERS WALKING GROUP!
Who are we?
- Friendly, relaxed, sociable, walking group
- Members are mostly based in Sheffield and Rotherham
- Wide range of walks around Sheffield and the Peak District
- A one-off £2.00 registration fee is charged when you join
We offer a broad range of walks, from Wednesday Health Walks which last between 80 - 100 minutes, 3 to 4 miles in length, to longer Sunday walks which are usually around 8-12 miles in length.
Every other Saturday our walks are either short themed walks of approximately 6 miles.
In the lighter evenings we have fortnightly midweek walks for anyone who fancies a brisk walk somewhere in the suburbs of Sheffield, followed by a pub visit afterwards. These walks are normally 3-5 miles in length and last about 1.5 hours. When the clocks go back we reduce these walks to once a month.
We have regular stops to admire the views, the flora, fauna, birds and other wildlife. Sharing local information and any general knowledge about the countryside and walking in general is always encouraged. We even wait for photographers sometimes! Click here for our latest walks.
Where we walk
Weekend walks are mostly around South Yorkshire and the Peak District, which have some of the most attractive villages and countryside in England. We sometimes venture into Nottinghamshire or further afield to the coast.
Evening walks usually take place within the boundaries of Sheffield itself.
By walking with the Shamblers you will get to know your local area better, meet new people and get fit all at the same time.
