Overview

'The Club exists to promote rambling and walking. Chiefly walks are in Derbyshire in the Peak district, though occasionally walks drift further afield by way of variety. We are open to everyone regardless of status, and welcome new members. Walks are planned and led by various members, and new ideas for walks are always needed, we do not want to get into a rut!'

'Derby Arboretum was the first public park in Britain and was a trend-setter in that Central Park in New York was based upon its design! Located just south of the city centre, it's a Grade II listed picturesque park with a fine collection of trees.'

'Derby Nomad Ramblers offer a warm welcome with walks on almost every Sunday in pleasant company, predominantly in the beautiful Peak District. The club also walks on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month ... A reputation as the hardest walking club in Derbyshire was acquired in the early years, but the Club has mellowed and mellowed and the Programme now offers a range of walks with something to suit most abilities.'

Overview

'We are a small, friendly walking club of varying abilities. Our Programme aims to be inclusive, so walks range from about four miles to twelve, with the occasional longer one thrown in for the more intrepid! Most walks take place on a Sunday:- a full day once a fortnight; - a morning ramble on one of the remaining Sundays. Also, monthly on a Tuesday: - a short to medium walk. In the winter, we have a monthly evening meeting, but this is replaced by a walk in the summer.'
