About the Walking Group
The Walking Group is either your introduction to Country Walking, or a Refuge for those no longer able to do the distances of traditional Rambling Clubs. Distances vary from 4 to 8 miles. We meet either a Tuesday or Wednesday morning in Brabyns Park car park, so please check the Calendar below and be ready to leave by 9-45 prompt.
Please note. Walks can change due to weather etc.
All walks meet IN Brabyns Park for prompt departure at 9.45 am.
When necessary Car Passengers are asked to contribute 10p per mile to petrol cost.
Walking safety: Footwear (walking boots are preferable). Clothing and equipment needs to be suitable for the conditions likely to be encountered. This area is famous for changeable weather so come prepared for all eventualities. Bring your mobile phone and inform the leader of your phone number and that of an emergency contact. Provide your own first aid kit.
Refreshments: Bring more than adequate food and drink for the length of walk and weather conditions. Remember delays sometimes occur. Please stay with the group unless you have arranged with the leader to do otherwise. Group co-ordinators are Roy Bradshaw (0161 427 7324) and Judith Lynch 0161 449 7507 or email: Marple Bridge and Mellor Walkers.
