The group leaves Hallgate (Astley Village) car park at 10 am prompt. Most of our walks are fairly local and about 7-8.5 miles. Some can be more strenuous than others. Contact the walk leader or group leader for more detailed information about the walk or parking arrangements. If you are in doubt that the walk will go ahead due to the weather please go to Hallgate rather than the start point.
If you haven't walked with us before please contact the group leader or the walk leader before going to Hallgate or the walk start point.

not a personal accident insurance and all members must be aware they walk at their own risk.
