There are a number of groups producing interesting and relevant newsletters covering our area or items that you may find informative.  Their newsletters can be accessed from the sites below.
(local ramblers groups' newsletters can be found on their websites) 


Here is the PDGLA February 2017 newsletter. The main news is about two traffic regulation orders, The PDNPA Derby Lane Traffic regulation order has now come into effect. The second one is a series of Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders (TTRO) on two badly damaged and dangerous routes in Hollinsclough. We are sorry the Hollinsclough routes have got into such a bad state but are pleased that the TTRO placed by Staffordshire County Council will prevent damage getting worse.

Every year, we prepare a summary of the progress being made by Derbyshire County Council in processing Definitive Map Modification Orders that PDGLA members are interested or involved in.(These are usually done in response to an application for a route to be added to the definitive map or its status to be changed on the definitive map).

Sheffield Visually Impaired Walking Group Request for Volunteers

Walking Group Need Sighted Guides.  
Are you a regular walker who enjoys rambling around the wonderful countryside which surrounds this city of ours? If so – do you have time to spare 1 or 2 days a month to help other keen walkers who want to explore the countryside in the same way but who have a visual impairment and need the help of a sighted guide? 

Sheffield Visually Impaired Walking Group organises regular rambles for visually impaired walk- ers. Each month there are four walks - an easy short ramble on a Tuesday, a 6 to 7-mile ramble on a Wednesday and a Sunday and a much more challenging walk on a Thursday. None of this is possible without the help of our sighted guides. But we are in real need of some more sighted guides to ensure that we can maintain our programme.  If you think you might be able to help us, please contact me, Christine Hewitt, on 0114 2366685 or

We usually suggest that potential new guides come out with us for a couple of times just to see whether you like us and want to join. Then we arrange for a half day training course to teach you how to guide VIPs. I hope I have caught your attention and I look forward to hearing from some of you.
