The Greater Manchester and High Peak Area and its Groups

The Greater Manchester and High Peak Area is one of a number of umbrella organisations within the Ramblers which co-ordinate the needs of Ramblers Groups.

Members are automatically sent the programme of the group covering the district in which they live, but all members may participate in the events of any group.

The Area also organises its own programme of walks. These all use public transport and take place on Sundays and Wednesdays.

Each of the groups has its own web site, which you can visit by clicking on the links in the webpage header above. Details of the Area walks can be found by clicking the links on the left.
