Local Walks

Forest Bank Park
June 2021


Convenor: Brian Briggs
To contact Brian, please email salfordu3a@gmail.com marking the subject line of your email ‘FAO: Brian Briggs’.

Venue and day/time: The walks take place on alternate Monday afternoons at 1pm, meeting at the start of the chosen walk. Travelling to areas within half an hour’s drive, the walks extend approximately three miles and are never strenuous.

2021 Local Walks Programme

All the walks have been selected as they are accessible by public transport and suggested routes are given. We will meet at the nearest bus stop as close to 1pm as public transport permits. Anyone coming by car should park and make their way to the bus stop. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE YOUR MOBILE PHONE WITH YOU and contact the walk leader if you are delayed.

Walks up to and including 24th May

Initially we will be restricted to groups not exceeding six people and, for this reason, the first three walks will happen on two consecutive weeks and will be led by either Brian or Beverley. Brian will contact you to invite you on a walk and please do not come unless you have been invited.
