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.

Sunday Walks

These are generally of a moderate grade.

Any queries, please contact Jeff Lewis 0161 766 4683.

Wednesday Shorter Walks

These are of a moderate grade and do not exceed 8 miles.

Any queries, please contact Gordon Campbell 0161 973 3859.

Wednesday Longer Walks

These are more strenuous than the Wednesday Shorter Walks and can be longer than 10 miles.

Any queries, please contact John Rattray 07813 241766.

National Parks 70th Anniversay

Ramblers were at Castleton to celebrate 70 years of the National Parks. The BBC were also there to record the event, which can be seen as part of the Countryfile programme scheduled to be shown on Sunday 7th April. Photos from the event can be found on our Events page.

Walk Ride GM

The Walk Ride GM Campaign was launched at the end of last year with the aim of making walking and cycling the natural choice for everyday journeys across Greater Manchester.

The Area expressed support for the initiative and we have been well represented at each of the two public meetings that have so far been held. A number of local groups have been established. A link to their web site can be found on our Links page under Campaigning.
