About Sheffield Shamblers

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?


We are a group of people of all ages and from every walk of life who enjoy walking and having a good time. Pleasant company and a good sense of humour is essential on all our walks. If you are looking for formal walks organised with military precision and strict codes of conduct, then this club is not for you!
Dogs are welcome, but must be kept on a lead at all times.

The best way to describe what the Shamblers is Sociable Walking for Sociable People..

Wednesday Chapeltown Health Walks

These walks are ideal for anybody, even if you have never walked with a group before. These are only 90 minutes afterwhich we have a cup of coffee making it an ideal opportunity to meet other members.

The Wednesday group have a fantastic time in all weathers with plenty of banter and laughter. All the members will tell how much better they feel by getting out and walking and socialising. No one ever holds the group back as we pride ourselves on looking after everyone; we never leave anyone behind.

If you are thinking about getting more exercise, these health walks are a gentle introduction, a gateway into a healthier lifestyle.

Thursday Walks

Walks are held every other Thursday in the daytime throughout the whole year and during the summer months we have Thursday evening walks on alternate weeks. The Thursday daytime walks commence at 11.00am and the Thursday evening walks at 7.00pm. Thursday walks are usually 5 - 6 miles in length and easy to moderate.

Saturday Walks

At the opposite end of the scale we undertake more moderate walks in the Peak District and beyond.  These walks will test those who like to scale an 'incline', negotiate a muddy track or clamber down steep slopes.

These walks take place at the weekends with a start time of 11am (please see our walks page for confirmation) so even if you are working you can come along and experience the great outdoors, fill your lungs with fresh air and take in the views.

In true Shamblers style we never leave anyone behind and ensure that everyone enjoys the experience and feels a sense of achievement at the end of the walk. It is almost a tradition that we find a local hostelry at the end of ther day to refresh ourselves and chat about the walk.
