The York Group works together with other local Ramblers groups in the East Yorkshire & Derwent Area (namely: Beverley, Howden & Goole, Hull & Holderness, Pocklington, Ryedale and Scarborough) to organise a programme of full, half-day and summer evening walks, including some that use public transport. Our aim is to enjoy the many miles of footpaths in the Vale of York and Howardian Hills, as well as the chalk hills and dry valleys of the Wolds, the heather clad North York Moors, the splendours of the Yorkshire coast, and the limestone Dales and millstone grit hills to the west. If you are interested in walking with us, you are welcome to try one or two walks before joining.
Some of our members inspect footpaths, trying to get stiles and bridges repaired, obstacles removed and signage improved. We are always looking for volunteers to help in this work. The Ramblers campaigns nationally for greater access for responsible walkers to the countryside and to the coast, and to keep open (or re-open) those rights of way shown on Ordnance Survey maps.
