About the Area Walks

Although intended for members, non-members are welcome to attend up to three walks as guests.

The Area walks make use of public transport to get to the start points. Because of this they will not take place if, for any reason, the intended transport is cancelled.

Always check transport times near the date of the walk with the walk leaders or by calling:

  • 0161 228 7811 for buses and trams.
  • 08457 484950 for trains.
