Welcome to the Walking Society at the University of Derby! 


Are you interested in discovering Derby and the local area?









We are looking forward to a slightly unusual but exciting term, nevertheless, packed with socials and local walks around the Derbyshire and beyond!

There will be walks for both experienced and inexperienced walkers; with the routes given out in advance, you can look it up and decide if you are up for it. Derby has many hidden gems that we'll be exploring throughout the year, as well as being near to the peak district! With plenty of chances for hikes, urban exploration, and rambles around parks. We will be arranging at least two walks a month, one long and one short, as well as one social event. We always welcome new people on our walks whether you are a member or not. As always, we only ask that you turn up with sensible footwear and enough food and water to see you through the day, and (most importantly) you do not mind being rained on every now and then!! Keep an eye on the monthly mailouts for details!

If you are interested in getting more involved with society in any way, please do not hesitate to get in touch through our email (walking.soc@derbyunion.co.uk) or our Instagram (uodwalkingsociety)

Finally, please do join our mailing list and our Facebook messenger group as this easiest way to be up to date with all the events we run. Our Facebook Group can also be used by society members to organise walks and find like-minded people to join them, whether it be local walks during the term time or even during holidays or something more adventurous like scrambling in North Wales.

So, get ready to get out there and explore,

We look forward to seeing you soon!
