Welcome to the Nottingham and Derby Walking Group

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.

Join us for a couple of easy walks and experience this fun and friendly group for yourself, or come to one of the monthly pub meets and meet people from the group.

Take a look around our website and join our Facebook group.

The Ramblers

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.

August events

We have our monthly pub meet on Thursday 17th August at The Angel microbrewery in Nottingham and meal at Red’s, Nottingham on Friday 18th August.
