All walks suspended until further notice due to Coronavirus guidelines

We are a small, friendly group of walkers looking for a few more friendly people to join us – with your dog if you wish!  We walk on the first Thursday and third Friday of each month, 4 – 5 miles of varying difficulty, at a medium pace. The walks only last a morning and generally finish with a pub lunch.  We meet at the Dog Wood lay-by on the Mobberley Road at 9.30 am to share lifts to the start of the walk.

Please contact me if you need more information or would like to go on our distribution list for more details of the walks. Alternatively you are welcome to just turn up at the starting point.

Walking Groups 1 & 3 – Trip to Castleton, August 2019

Edale Aug 2016

At the beginning of August members of Walking Groups 1 and 3 combined to go on a coach trip to Castleton.  Having driven through Whaley Bridge about half an hour before the village was closed and evacuated due to rain damage to the dam above it roughly half the group alighted in a layby to do a 5 mile linear walk into Castleton via Rushup Edge, Mam Tor, Hollins Cross and down into the village.  The weather was perfect for walking, the scenery on both sides of the ridge was spectacular and the group enjoyed a lunch stop with sweeping views of the valley.  This photo was taken at the summit of Mam Tor.

The second group of walkers stayed on the coach as far as Edale where, after a coffee stop, they did a slightly shorter, low level circular walk which also included some lovely scenery and a lunch stop.  They then got back on the coach and were driven to Castleton to meet up with the linear walk group for tea and a look round the village.  Wendy, our very obliging coach driver, then had to take us back to Knutsford via a very circuitous route as, by that time, Whaley Bridge had been completely closed off due to the danger of the dam bursting.  All in all it was a very enjoyable day out and we avoided all the rain that was around on that day.  Thanks to Margaret Hinde and Margaret Cole who helped to organise the trip.
