Winter Guided Walks

DECEMBER 2021 to FEBRUARY 2022
All are welcome, no membership required, come regularly or just occasionally. You are advised to wear appropriate clothing and hiking boots. We will walk even if it is raining!

On longer walks bring a packed lunch. In winter months we may stop at a café for lunch, if one is convenient. There are plenty of stiles and several steep inclines. Sorry no dogs. For more information visit our website: www.westpennineway.org
(Details of our annual village trail and quiz will be on the website in December.)
