Vermuyden Group was founded in 1986 and is based in South Yorkshire but also has active members in surrounding counties including Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and North, East and West Yorkshire.
Group Meetings take place on the 2nd Monday of every month at the "The Old Angel" Cleveland Street, Doncaster DN1 3EF commencing at around 8.00 pm. Members and non members are welcome to attend.
Group Social Walks are arranged on a monthly basis and we aim to make our walks programme varied with both local and more distant start venues. Our policy is to make them social rather than competetive events and we do take account of the slower walker. We usually arrange a pub stop at lunchtime as part of this policy. All are welcome to join us!
The Elsecar Skelter, at least in the short term, is not to feature in our programme as a challenge event but it is available as an anytime challenge.
Challenge Walks - We issue route descriptions for the Doncastrian Way, Vermuyden Way, Elsecar Skelter and Bog Dodgers Way and have badges and certificates available for successful completions
Other Activities include quiz walks and an annual supported "long walk" for Vermuyden Group members (usually around 40 miles).
