Lunch at 12.00, walk starts 1.30pm
Today lunch will be at the Red Lion, Lower Withington, Cheshire, SK11 9EA. Take the A34 south from Alderley Edge and after about 5 miles in the village of Siddington turn right onto the B5392. Follow this for about 2 miles to Lower Withington and in the centre of the village at the triangular village green turn left (signposted Swettenham and Somerford, Clonter Opera and Red Lion). The pub is about 250 yards on the left-hand side. (The village can also be approached from the A535 Chelford to Holmes Chapel Road.)
The walk will commence at 13.30 and will be about 4½ miles. It is very flat, but will almost certainly be wet and muddy. There is no public transport to the immediate area, but if anyone requires a lift from Wilmslow or Alderley Edge please contact me beforehand.
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 !
