The walks calendar will be finalised very soon. You will be able to access the information on our calendar here on this website, download a printable leaflet, or obtain a printed leaflet from the Bridgend Centre.
Join David Lambert to use your Nordic walking poles on this walk to find three millennium stones, with good views and a variety of scenery. We'll go to Sowcar, Waukmill, Rainow, Harrop and Billinge Hill and finish along Hedgerow. Bring a drink and your walking poles. Booking required.
Along the Middlewood Way to the recreation ground (toilet facilities) and Clarence Mill, returning via the canal. An easy walk with only a couple of short, very gentle inclines. Refreshments can be purchased at the Lord Clyde pub at the end of the walk.
We'll climb onto the moors to Lamaload reservoir via White Nancy, walk in the shadow of Cats Tor then take the Gritstone Trail to Sponds Hill and the Bowstones, returning via West Parkgate and the canal. 2,000ft (600m) total ascent.
Climbing from Bollington to Shining Tor via Lamaload Reservoir, we'll go along the ridge to Pym Chair and back to Bollington via Jenkin Chapel. NOTE: this walk incorrectly showed the meeting point as the Bridgend Centre but it's starting from the Poachers Inn.
Our walks are led by a number of local organisations; there is a charge for some walks, which are indicated by a £ symbol on the walk programme. Where booking is not required for a walk, we just ask you to arrive in plenty of time.
Where advance booking is required, simply reserve your place by purchasing your ticket from the calendar above. For the Sensory Walk please telephone the Eye Society (phone number on the programme). If you would like any support with online booking, please contact the Bridgend Centre on 01625 576311 to arrange a convenient time for us to help you with it.
Please note that all walks and events are listed in good faith but will be subject to the government’s Coronavirus guidelines as they stand at the time of the festival in late September 2021. Our overriding concern is the safety of all those involved. Please check our website regularly for the most up-to-date information on how things are being done.
On walks starting from the Bridgend Centre, please wait outside the front of the Centre for the walk to start as numbers are limited inside.
Walking: essential information
Please wear suitable footwear and clothing and bring a waterproof. We reserve the right not to take a person who is not properly equipped as this could affect the safety and enjoyment of the whole group.
Please check the walk symbols to confirm whether dogs are welcome; dogs are not allowed on some of the walks. To avoid disturbance to farm animals or wildlife, please keep your dog on a lead and under control.
Most walk leaders are volunteers.
All walks are circular unless stated.
In poor weather the leader may modify the walk, or in extreme conditions, cancel it.
A packed lunch may be required; look for the symbol on the walk details. It is advisable to carry a drink.
Young walkers aged 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
