Welcome to DONCASTER HF RAMBLING CLUB, an independent, non-profit-making walking club founded in 1948 under the auspices of Holiday Fellowship, now known as HF Holidays to whom we have been affiliated ever since.  Our Club strives to provide its members with opportunities for the healthy enjoyment of the countryside, in a spirit of friendship and fun.  

With many members from Doncaster and beyond, we organise walks to take place every four weeks on a Sunday, visiting a wide range of locations in the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire Moors and coast, the Yorkshire Wolds, Lincolnshire Wolds, the South Pennines, and Staffordshire. A pictorial record of our walks can be accessed from the drop-down menu under 'Recent Walks' and 'Where We Go'. At each location we offer a choice of three guided walks of varying degrees of distance and difficulty, an example of which can be found in the  menu under 'Next Walk'.  For social events we organise residential visits to more distant areas such as the Lake District, South Derbyshire and Northumberland, a record of which can also be accessed from the menu under 'Weekend Away', whilst in December members are invited to attend a Christmas lunch following our walk. 'Walk Leader Training' also gives a glimpse of how members can become involved.

We provide transport to all our walk locations by private coach, with members boarding and being dropped off at a number of points in and around Doncaster listed in the drop-down menu under 'Booking Walks'. The link on the menu to 'Walks Programme' shows where and when we go several months ahead, while a map of where we go year by year, location by location, can also be accessed by clicking on 'Map of Walks Programme'.

We welcome prospective new members by encouraging them to participate in a couple of walks before asking them to pay our annual membership subscription.  However we do ask that they pay the coach fare which is currently set at £15 for the entire journey.

To make further enquiries please first contact our Membership Secretary, Colin Head on:      07590 257673 ( e-mail:, and then to book a place on a walk telephone our Booking Secretary, Alan Taylor on 07735296380.
