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.
