Walking Group

Contact: Sue Harding

Email: saddleworthwi.walking@gmail.com

The walking group is now back in action! We trialled a “staggered walk” in two groups of up to 6 on Sunday 12th July around Carrbrook. The weather was kind to us and our social distancing worked well.

You would be very welcome to come walking with us. Just let us know you are coming then turn up at the starting point, adequately equipped with appropriate footwear (preferably boots), and warm and waterproof clothing. If you feel you need more information to check how hard the walk would be, to ensure that you would be fit enough, directions to the starting point or any further advice please contact us at saddleworthwi.walking@gmail.com

Members and visitors who walk with us are responsible for their own conduct and safety. Neither Saddleworth WI nor any walk leader is responsible for any accident or incident that may occur.

A circular walk of approx 5.5 miles from Delph to Denshaw and back via Heights.

We return via field paths and tracks taking in views of Castleshaw reservoirs and pass Heights church before dropping back down into Delph village. There are a number of stiles on this walk but none are particularly high, some unmade up paths across fields and one short steep climb but the return section is downhill.
