LONG EATON RAMBLING CLUB

CLUB DETAILS
 
The Rambling Club is a group for all ages* who go countryside walking on footpaths in Derbyshire and the surrounding area. We also sometimes use coaches to visit and walk in other parts of the country. Walking holidays and social events are also organised. 
 
Membership of the Rambling Club is £5 a year (subject to revision each year) and includes a bi-monthly programme of walks, coaches and social events. Anyone interested is invited to try a few walks before they pay their membership. Walks on the same day are sometimes graded on the programme. 'A' rambles can be strenuous, long mileage, and the going can be tough and hilly at times. 'B' rambles cover shorter distances at a steadier pace although not necessarily in very flat areas. Walk distance can range from about 6 miles to well over 10 miles. *These walk distances may be too much for very young children. Evening walks are easier and much shorter. It is advisable to come fully prepared for the outdoors with good walking shoes or boots. Packed lunch should be taken on all day rambles. In the interest of good practice walk leaders do have the right to refuse to take anyone on a ramble who is not wearing suitable clothing for the time of year. Special coaches are sometimes booked to different destinations combining walking and social visits for those who do not wish to join the walking party. Indoor social events are held once a month from September to April at St. John's Church Hall, College Street, Long Eaton.  

For Sunday rambles we meet with cars at Long Eaton Town Hall Car Park, The Green, Midland Street, Long Eaton, Derbyshire (near Asda Supermarket). Car transport to walk starting points is normally shared by arrangement with car drivers, but only when payment is made towards the cost of fuel. Special coaches pick-up from various places in the Long Eaton area. For individual walk enquiries please contact the walk leader on the telephone number given. For other general walk enquiries please contact the Programme Secretary. Officer contact details are as follows:

WALKING HOLIDAY - LATE SEPTEMBER OR EARLY OCTOBER 2018 

One or two members have asked me about organising a holiday for next year, so I hope the following details will be of some interest. Robert.

WEEK AT WHITBY, YORKSHIRE COAST AND NORTH YORK MOORS

Whitby is a very popular seaside resort situated on both sides of the River Esk which flows to the sea between tall cliffs. The old town is on the East Cliff with it’s working harbour surrounded by pretty red-tiled fishing houses and cobbled streets. The 19th century holiday quarter is on the West Cliff built along the sands with promenade and connected to the harbour by the romantically named Khyber Pass cut through solid rock. The atmospheric ruins of Whitby Abbey, founded by St Hilda in 657 and rebuilt much later, overlooks the old town and harbour. Very close by at the top of 199 steps from the old town is the large medieval church of St Mary’s with an astonishing interior filled everywhere with galleries and boxed pews and with the abbey are a must-see.

The circular walks in and around the Whitby area are shown below. All will be easy going and have lunch time stops at pubs and/or tearooms. There will be one midweek day without an organised walk.

Coastal Walk (from Guest House): Rigg Mill Valley, Hawsker Village (lunch and pub stop), Widdy Head, Saltwick Bay. 9 miles.

Esk Dale and Moorland Walk: Cars to Lealholm (Village CP). Egton Banks, Carr End (lunch and pub stop), Glaisdale Village and Moor. 8 to 9 miles.

Coastal Walk and Staithes: Cars to Runswick Bay (Village CP). Borrowby Dale, Staithes Village (lunch and pub/tearoom stop), Port Mulgrave. 8 to 9 miles.

Murk Esk Dale and Moorland Walk: Cars to Egton Bridge (Village CP). Murk Mire Moor, Beck Hole (lunch and pub stop), Grosmont (stream railway). 8 to 9 miles.

Coastal Walk and Robin Hood's Bay: Cars to Ravenscar (roadside parking). Brow Moor, Mill Beck, Robin Hood's Bay (lunch and pub/tearoom stop), Boggie Hole and High Scar. 8 miles.

Bed and Breakfast with be arranged in the centre of Whitby. There are a few suitable guest houses to choose from and a decision will be made depending on the number wishing to book. For evening meals Whitby has many restaurants and pubs, but usually the first evening and the last are pre-booked at a recommended place for the entire party. The cost of accommodation for seven days bed and breakfast will be in the region of £250 to £300.

Members interested or wishing to book should contact Robert Turton as soon as possible (Tel: 0115 9720623). A deposit will probably be required later when demand for the holiday is known and a firm guest house booking made.
 
COACH HOLIDAY TO CROMER, NORTH NORFOLK - 10TH TO 16TH MARCH 2018

I am pleased to announce that we have managed to arrange a club holiday to Cromer in the March of next year staying on a half board basis (dinner bed and breakfast) for a 7 day 6 night stay with the usual excursions.

Our stay will be at the *** Hotel de Paris, occupying probably the finest position in Cromer, close to the shops and historic Church and directly overlooking the pier and beach. All rooms are en-suite and centrally heated most with excellent views, the rooms have tea.coffee making facilities with hair driers, T/V with radio channels and free Wi-Fi in the public areas. We will enjoy a complementary drink with dinner every evening and a packed lunch is included on non coach days.

Cromer was once a small fishing village which has now grown into a bustling family holiday resort. This attractive seaside town is full of character with its narrow twisting streets in the town centre, colourful gardens and a lively seafront promenade behind the sandy beach. Cromer is set amidst the pleasant countryside and superb walking area of North Norfolk with its leafy country lanes, villages with their flint cottages and of course situated within easy reach of Norwich, Sheringham and the North Norfolk coast.

The total cost of the holiday will be £274.00 per person. I will require a non returnable deposit of £40 per person to secure your place by Saturday 15th April 2017 with the balance at a later date. As usual single rooms are at a premium so please share if possible. You can pay me in the usual ways, cash on walks, through the door or by cheque through the post made out to Vivien Aram.
