Lunch 12 Noon Walk 13.30
This month we are back in Glossop, and the location is the Norfolk Arms, Norfolk Square, Glossop, Derbyshire, SK13 8BP. Head for the centre of Glossop (M67/A57 from Manchester, A626 from Stockport) and going east it is on the left at the traffic lights at the main crossroads in Glossop town centre, just in front of the station. There is only a small car park but there is on-street parking nearby and public car parks on Edward St and Bernard St. These are however all more easily accessed by turning left at the previous traffic lights at Arundel St. (where the car park signs are).
The walk is about 4 miles to Whitfield and Moorfield with moderate amounts of climbing, mainly in the town at the beginning.
Public transport : There is a half-hourly Sunday train service from Piccadilly to Glossop at 29 and 59 minutes past the hour, taking 30 minutes.
Every Sunday throughout the year, Manchester IVC has a walk which starts off at 1.30 pm prompt, and is usually 4-5 miles …. something like that. We meet at a local pub or restaurant and the walk will either start from there or somewhere nearby. As well as the walk itself, there is the option to meet for a meal or a drink before the walk and/or after the walk for those who wish. You will be able to see from the location and the walk description whether or not the walk is going to be suitable for you – but the idea is that all on the walk will benefit from enjoyable exercise and a good social.
Please make sure you are wearing appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather and terrain – the walk leader will always have the right to decide on the day if someone is not appropriately dressed. The walk leaders are all members of the club and are volunteers.
There are car share options available, so if you are stuck for a lift, just add a note here and we’ll do our level best to help.
There are usually between 10 to 20 walkers dependent on the weather and location – so by all means come along and join in. It’s a great gateway to the rest of the club, you can talk to new and established members and find out about the full range of events we have on in Manchester every month.
The walks are very popular, so please RSVP if you plan to attend and we’ll make sure you’re made to feel very welcome !
