Halcyon Rambling Club is long established, having an unbroken history dating back to 1927 and, although the Club is based in Sheffield, our membership comes from as far afield as Manchester and Essex. We regularly walk in the Peak District, which is the most popular National Park in the UK, covering areas of Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and South Yorkshire.
Our varied programme offers a full-day walk every Sunday, Wednesday morning rambles (followed by an optional pub lunch) every couple of weeks throughout the year and, from April/May to late August, there are short walks on Friday evenings, usually ending at a convenient local hostelry. Weekends away (some extended to a full week) are held in Spring and Autumn to such places as the Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland, Wales etc.
Halcyon’s social calendar includes a BBQ, a ‘big day out’ and also a ‘summer social’. The regular autumn and winter events are an ‘end of year get-together’, a ‘mince pie ramble’ and finally our New Year’s lunch. Club members also organise other events on an ad hoc basis.
Virtually the whole of the ramble and social programmes had to be suspended from the first COVID related lockdown. As all UK government restrictions affecting our activities have been removed, we are pleased to offer, once again, our full range of rambles and social events to both members and guests. However, COVID has not gone away and we recommend that everyone is fully vaccinated. Please refer to the COVID Advice page on this website – our aim is to keep everybody as safe as possible.
The Club receive funding every time members/guests take a holiday with RWH Travel Limited (Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, Adagio and Cruise and Walk Holidays) and nominate Halcyon Rambling Club (for details click The Walking Partnership logo).
