Walking group general information

Walking Group.

This is an informal group which is open to anyone whether or not members of St Mark. It started over 15 years ago when the Church was in dire need of money for urgent building repairs and a sponsored walk was suggested. This first walk was a financial success and it also brought people closer together, so much so that we have had a sponsored walk every year since.
In each of the past 8 years the core members of this group have spent a week away in Scotland walking some of the more rugged mountains in Britain and in the evenings finding the best pubs in which to eat, drink and enjoy each others company.
We try to have a walk most months visiting the Lakes, North Wales or Derbyshire.

Anything from low level canal walks to adventures in the Scottish Highlands.

It all started when Ray Morris our vicar suggested completing the Three National Peaks in 24 hours way back in the mid nineties as that original fund raiser for Church.  What a weekend that turned out to be?  We'll tell you about it soon.

Along the way some of our team have done the Coast to Coast walk, Offa's Dyke, all the mountains in Wales over 3000ft, all the Mountains in England over 3000ft and all the Mountains in Scotland over 4000ft.  Along with more leasurely, Oldham Way, Rochdale Way, Tameside Way and the Todmorden Centenary Way over the years.

It's our Christmas walk on the 19th of December then we start planning our spring holiday - the last 6 years have taken us to  Scotland.

Everyone is welcome.
