WALKING GROUP 2

 

 

WALKING GROUP 2

Co-ordinator:  Tony Roberts

Tel: 07803 615916

 

Walks take place fortnightly, alternating between Mondays and Wednesdays.  The meeting place is at the lay-by on Mobberley Road just before the watertower (Travis Perkins) at 9.30 a.m.  Please let the leader know if you intend to go directly to the start.

We tend to gravitate towards longer walks (7-9 miles) in the summer months.  These will suit the more adventurous walkers within the U3A.

During June we include a linear walk broken up over several days.  In 2019 it will be three sections of the Lancashire Trail, including Rivington Pike.

If you would like more details of any particular walk (e.g. difficulty, conditions underfoot or number of stiles) please ring the leader or if you have any other problems or matters for discussion please ring me on 07803 615916.
