RambAles 2023

Join us again for a RambAle in 2023!

Once again we invite you to join us on visits to some of our local pubs and villages in the countryside in and surrounding Sheffield using public transport.

Oct (TBA)

We may have a late RambAle in October, but we’re waiting for the football fixture lists and dates of local beer festivals to come out so we can fit our walks around them and some of these walks may have to be amended to suit the situation.

PLEASE NOTE: All bus, tram and train times are subject to change and last minute cancellation. Please check before setting off

We aim to provide a series of walks which we hope people won’t find either too long or too strenuous
and most will feature a number of pubs and drop-out points where people can leave and make their own way back, by bus or train, to Sheffield if they don’t fancy doing the whole walk or want to stay for another drink in a particular pub. These will also provide joining points for any latecomers.

Most timings and fares will be given in the walk’s listing. Any additions or amendments will also be published in new leaflets, future editions of Beer Matters or on the branch website, or by contacting the RambAles coordinator on 07842 530128 or rambale@sheffield.camra.org.uk who can also be contacted if you need any more information on any of these walks.

Everyone is welcome to join us on any of these walks but they are advised to come suitably equipped for the day’s walking, which may be rough, wet and muddy in places. You should also come prepared for the possibility of changeable and inclement weather. In most cases you will also need to bring (or be able to buy) sufficient food and drink for yourself for the day.

Malcolm & Jenny
