The Windmill Walkers Rambling Club was established in 1999. It was formed in Skidby, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, where you will find the only working windmill in East Yorkshire - hence the club name.
With a membership of over 80 adults, the club is managed by a committee of annually elected volunteers.
We concentrate on a programme of member led, weekly Wednesday walks of some 5 to 7 miles which attract around 30 walkers, and longer weekend walks once each month on the 3rd Sunday involving 10 or 12 regular walkers.
Wednesday walks usually start at 10:00am ending at about 1:00pm with an optional lunch at a suitable pub or cafe. We take a break at about 11am for a drink and snack. Most walks take place in the East Riding of Yorkshire with occasional visits to North Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
If you would like to try a walk with us then please contact us by e-mail. We hope that you enjoy our company so much that after two walks you will want to become a member. Please wear adequate footwear and clothing. Whilst we take care when planning walks, when you do walk with the club, you are responsible for your own safety and ensuring that you are fit enough to take part.
Annual membership is £10.00, renewable in January. Our constitution and membership application form are available in the Document Store.
