As well as a varied programme of weekly walks and hikes taking advantage of the excellent walking country around Manchester and Salford, the group occassionally organises weekends away, usually April and October.
We have had now had many weekends away: in Whitby, Kettlewell, Malham, Conwy, Hartington, Mankinholes, Arnside Youlgreave (Peak District), Ravenstor (Peak District), Slaidburn (Forest of Bowland) and in Windermere (Lake District) All were very successful, the latest being The Sill. We like to try out different parts of this beautiful country of ours!
There is a good turnout for the events and the YHs we stayed at were fantastic.
Are you interested in helping out to organise our weekends away?
Our next weekend away is April 6th & 7th in Llangollen
We have booked 21 places at the Llangollen Hostel. There are currently 15 places reserved so if you are interested in one of the remaining places the cost will be in the region of £45 each for the weekend including 2 continental breakfasts. The hostel doesn't provide evening meals but I'll be investigating local hostelries presently.

You can register your interest with an email to me but once I've set up a new bank account I will be asking for a £10 non-refundable deposit in the new year. Final payment will be due in March (this will depend on numbers going)

Our October weekend away will be to Shropshire 4th, 5th & 6th (venue to be confirmed)
October weekend in Hathersage.
This time we stayed at the YH in Hathersage which was ideal for setting out on our 2 walks. On the Saturday we walked up to Stanage Edge. On the Sunday we got the train from Hathersage to Grindleford and walked up Padley Gorge towards Burbage and returned to Hathersage. Both amazing walks with the best weather we could wish for.
Thanks to our walk leaders.
