Due to the Coronavirus our walks programme has been suspended until January 2021 at least. If restrictions are lifted we will be arranging local walks from January (or whenever) using our own transport, on the same dates as shown on the 2021 walk dates programme, starting at 9.00am at the arranged meeting point, which I will notify by email as usual.
If we do get back to normal and are able to use the coach we will follow the previously planned 2020 walks from March, now transferred on to the 2021 program, providing approval by our walk leaders, (This will still need to be ratified), but in the meantime, you can request to be added to our email mailing list for a monthly update and details of where to meet.
When we do return to normal, the coach leaves Doncaster Market Car Park at 8.00am generally every fourth Sunday (free parking on Sundays) for a full day out to enjoy a variety of interesting walks, in the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors, Yorkshire Wolds, East Coast or Peak District.

The coach fare is currently £12 and our current coach company is Mayfields Travel.
Check out Vivs updates and Walk Reviews from the menu for the latest photographs and information or see us on Facebook (Doncaster Outsiders Walking Club) for comments and photographs.
With prior notification there is provision to pick up along the following route, before reaching the Market car park.
The coach leaves Kilnhurst around 7.00am,and should reach Balby between 7.10am and 7.15, Edenthorpe from 7.25, Armthorpe from 7.40, (and if we head out of town along York Road there will be a pick up at York Bar at around 8.05am).
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.
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 often serve teas, coffees and none alcoholic drinks).
We usually take up to an hours break before the afternoon walk of around 3-4 miles, but if you’ve done enough or 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 we often venture further from Doncaster, so can be later getting back home.(ie between 6.00 and 7.00pm)
We look forward to meeting you
