Weekend walks take place on the Saturday or Sunday following the monthly meeting. Shorter Summer evening walks will be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Dates are below but walk routes are not yet all confirmed, so members can get the dates in their diaries and details will be confirmed nearer the time.

You are 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 [email protected]

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.

All walks subject to change.

Review of Walking Group 11/11 Challenge 2020

Walkers approached this in a variety of ways, from walking 11,000 steps each day for 11 days, to walking for 11 hours over the course of a week, being sponsored and donating to The Royal British Legion. Collectively they walked 336 miles, the equivalent of walking from Oldham to Truro in Cornwall! Well done to all walkers – what an educational and poignant project! The final amount raised was £395.
