2020 Walks

As a result of timetable changes, many of the bus/tram/train departure times have changed from those shown in the printed programme.

NOTE: From Rambles Secretary’s 16th November 2019 email-

“News on Derbyshire Wayfarer – I am told they can no longer be purchased from the driver on buses going into Derbyshire.

The only place they can be purchased in Sheffield is the railway station.
Advance payment scratch cards have to be purchased at information
centres in Derbyshire, Bakewell, Castleton, Chesterfield etc.”
