Manchester Pedestrian Club
Saturday Walking Around Greater Manchester
(c) John Procter
The Manchester Pedestrian Club was founded over 100 years ago as a 'gentlemen's walking club' to organise walks on Saturdays in the terrain around Greater Manchester. Now 'gentlemen' may be male or female! Though it began as a walk-racing club, its ethos soon changed to enjoying walking with "courtesy and compansionship".
Each Saturday, members and guests meet for a walk, usually on the hills, followed by a meal in a nearby venue, usually a pub. Occasionally, weekends away (Festival Weekends) or weekday walks are organised.
We even enjoy the wet! Group at Dobcross. (c) Geoff Orsler 2017
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.
