Welcome to East Yorkshire and Derwent Ramblers

About Us

The East Yorkshire and Derwent Area of the Ramblers' Association has about seventeen hundred members. Additionally, many local walking clubs are affiliated to our organisation. This enables us to have an influential voice when representing the interests of both walkers and lovers of our local countryside. Our main aims are:


  • Protecting footpaths and other places to which the public has a right of way or access on foot.
  • Defending the beauty of the countryside
  • Promoting walking for everyone including health benefits of outdoor pursuits
  • Advancing the education of the public in subjects concerning access to, preservation of and conservation of the countryside
