Convenors: Hazel Walker/Joy Strangeways, 0161 794 9580
Venue and Time: We meet on alternate Mondays at St Mark’s Church Car Park, Worsley, for a 10am departure.
Please note: Until further notice, all walks from 23 March onwards are cancelled following government guidelines regarding coronavirus.
Please see the Walks Programme below. This programme is not yet complete, but walks earlier in the year are now confirmed. Please watch this space for updates.
These are full day walks led by volunteers. Could new members please contact the convenor before joining so we have an idea on numbers.
Transport to the start of the walks relies on informal car sharing and expenses also being shared, a formula for which exists. The walks are full days and you are required to bring a packed lunch.
These walks are generally about 5-7 miles (or a little shorter when daylight is limited) and are relatively gentle and predominantly on flat ground involving little ascent. We are generally back in Worsley by four o’clock.
The moderate walks are currently discontinued and often, but not always, involved some hilly, steep sections, but nothing a reasonably fit person would find too taxing.
We would wish to encourage as many people as possible to lead walks.
Please contact Convenors to answer any query.
