DWRG is an independent rambling and hill walking group aimed at people in their 30’s to 50’s and we also have long standing members in their 60’s. We encourage others to enjoy walking and you can become a member of this club for just £5 per annum entitling you to come on any of our walks. We have a day walk every Sunday (with a pub lunch) and evening walks on summer Friday evenings (May to September).

DWRG covers all its expenses through an income of £5 per person per year, including providing public liability insurance.  You will see some great countryside and we stop for a pub lunch on Sundays to refresh for the afternoon walk.  Be tempted to join us, we are recruiting right now.  Our most popular activities are:

Sunday Walks – full day walks, over distances of 8 to 12 miles. Some are “figures of eight”, making it easy to walk just the morning or the afternoon. We always stop for a pub lunch and a drink or you can bring a picnic if you prefer to eat outside. Group size averages 8 to 15 people.

Weekend / Bank Holiday Trips in the UK– for coastal, moorland and mountain walking, using a variety of accommodation.

Friday Evening Walks from May to early September we go out for short evening walks to a country pub.
