Walk each Saturday, often on the hills around Manchester, followed by refreshment in a nearby venue.
Also occasional Festival Weekends and weekday walks.
More than 5000 walks organised since founded 1903.
We even enjoy the wet! Group at Dobcross. (c) Geoff Orsler 2017
See Photographs of earlier walks, sent in by members during the 2020 lockdown.
Coming up Shutlingsloe - in sun and in mist. (c) Geoff Orsler 2018, Andrew Basden 2019
At the end of the day, participants in all three walks take a meal together in a nearby pub or other venue. One of our historical quirks is that we change into smart casual clothes for the meal.
