Derwent Dawdlers

The Derwent Dawdlers is a group for walkers who, for whatever reason, are no longer able to tackle a longer ramble but still want to get out to appreciate the countryside.

The walks will be about 2 to 2.5 miles long and are planned to avoid steep gradients and tricky stiles. Because of the geography of our region, this may mean that the walk is not circular and we will retrace our steps at the halfway point.

The pace, as the name implies, will be slow to give us plenty of opportunity to admire the views and to appreciate the finer details of nature!

The walks will be weekly on a Tuesday and will start at 10.30am from Whitworth Car Park*, which has a cafe and a picnic area. We will walk for about an hour, have a coffee break, then head back for lunchtime.

*There is a small car parking fee at The Whitworth
