WALK DETAILS SUBMISSION FORM IN MEMBERS INFO

All walks meet at the Lacy Street car park, Stretford (opposite Atlas bathrooms) except where stated and depart at the start time listed below.  Perhaps you want to check the weather before you go - click here.

When the walk details are available, a link to them will be added from the walk date box.  (The text in the box changes to Green/Underlined to indicate that the details are available.)

GRADING OF WALKS

Walks are graded as below, irrespective of distance. 

Easy                  - generally flat with little or no climbing or gradients.

Easy Moderate  - undulating country, on good paths and gentle gradients.

Moderate          - undulating country with some stiffer/longer gradients, but nothing too difficult.

Hard Moderate - rougher undulating country with some fairly steep/long gradients.

Strenuous         - very rough country with steep/long gradients, the use of hands may be required.

LIFT SHARING
Please note if you accept a lift from Lacy Street to the starting point of a walk, we suggest that you offer £5 to the driver as a contribution towards running costs.

ALTERNATIVE WALKS
Any member contemplating organising a walk other than those on the current Walks List must inform the Walks Co-ordinators in advance, so that details can be put on the Noticeboard.  Otherwise the walk will not be covered by the Clubs' insurance policy.
