Welcome to the Doncaster Outsiders Website, please get in touch if you would like to join us, for a fun packed Sunday out, but please be aware that we are currently having difficulty fitting new starters in. (Contact details at bottom of this page)
We meet prior to 8.00am every 4 weeks on a Sunday at the Market Car Park (free parking on Sundays) for a full day out, and enjoy a variety of interesting walks all over the area, from the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors, Yorkshire Wolds, East Coast and Peak District, to walks around historic sites and geological features, and finishing in historic towns or pretty villages.
You can see our programme of walks in more detail, by clicking on the '2018 Walk Dates' here or to the left of this page.
The coach fare is £11, and we will maintain this price through 2018. Our current coach company is Mayfields Travel.
If you want to check out what we get up to, then go to my update link 'Phils Update' for the latest photographs and information. We also have a Facebook page (Doncaster Outsiders Walking Club) where we can exchange comments and share photographs.(Click on the Facebook listing to the left for U-tube link of some previous walks)
We leave Doncaster Market Place at 8.00am prompt, but there is also provision to pick up along the following route, before reaching the car park. The coach leaves Kilnhurst at 7.00am, Balby 7.10, Edenthorpe 7.25, Armthorpe 7.40, ( if we head out of town along York Road there will be a pick up at York Bar around 8.05am). Anyone wishing to be picked up should arrange this with myself beforehand so we can look out for you.
We recommend sturdy walking shoes/boots as we often cover uneven terrain and basic footpaths, waterproofs in case of rain, a fleece when sat outside, and a drink/sandwiches. A full suggested 'KIT LIST' is available by clicking here or on the menu to the left.
There are generally two walking groups in the morning. The ‘A’ Team walk is between 8 and 11 miles and the 'B' walk is usually 2 or 3 miles shorter. Each have a mid walk stop for eating any sandwiches and drinks you bring, and will arrive at a welcoming pub in the early afternoon (In larger villages and towns there may be tea & coffee shops nearby if you prefer, but pubs will serve teas, coffees and none alcoholic drinks).
After about an hours break, anyone with any energy left can join our keen walkers for an afternoon stroll of around 3-4 miles, or if you prefer to spend longer in the pub there are plenty of members to entertain and socialise with, or simply do your own thing, take it easy, have a look round the area.
The coach will generally depart around 4:30pm to 5.00pm to pick up the afternoon walkers and return to Doncaster (in the summer, travel time is often further), not just a lovely day out walking but a memorable one too, with plenty to talk about on the way home.
We all look forward to meeting you
