Our Walking Group
The NDWG was set up in 1997 by Kevin Matthews and Sarah Rich who met on an overseas walking holiday in Alpbach, Austria and thought it would be a great idea to see a young people’s walking group set up back home.
We are a group of people aged between 20s & 30s and over who love to walk and socialise together. We have around 300 members and organise regular guided walks on Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesday evenings, and regular social events too. It is a great way to explore the outdoors and meet new people.
Take a look around our website and join our Facebook group.
Nottingham & Derby Walking Group Objectives
- Walking is our primary goal and our group, there are regular walks in the Peak District national park, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire. We welcome walkers of all abilities to join us on one of our many varied walks on offer. Our walks programme is available here. We have guided walks every week, often with a choice of walks and weekend walking holidays once or twice a month.
- Socialising is fundamental to our group activities and our Social Programme offers socials every two weeks.

We are a local branch of The Ramblers and are now part of their ever increasing number of local young persons’ groups. To support the work carried out by the Ramblers, we work to protect our local rights of way by surveying paths and reporting any problems. We also help to defend the beauty of our local countryside by running regular conservation weekends, often at rock bottom accommodation prices and with a social side too.
