The Derbyshire Area of the Ramblers covers most of Derbyshire, including some of the Peak District National Park. Derbyshire Area has more than 1700 members in four local groups. They are are Amber Valley, Derbyshire Dales, Derby & South Derbyshire and Erewash.

In addition the Notts & Derby Walking Group caters for people in their 20s and 30s throughout the Derbyshire and Nottingham.

Campaigning work: The Association works tirelessly defending and promoting access for walkers and was at the forefront of the implementation of The Countryside and Rights of Way (CRoW) Act.  The next great cause is for coastal access: the right to walk along beaches, clifftops and foreshore.
