Walking for exercise and pleasure.

Our walks are in three different categories: (click on each categories for more details)

Easy – AMBLERS – Usually between 2-4 miles, fairly flat, with good paths. There may be stiles.

Moderate – RAMBLERS –  Between 4-6 miles, with the possibility of some rougher walking and up-hill stretches (but we won’t be rushing)

Challenging – SCRAMBLERS –  Over 8 miles with the likelihood of steep, rougher sections

Please Note.

  • Walking boots or stout shoes are required for all walks
  • No dogs are allowed
  • You may sign up for any walk at the monthly meeting. Lists will be available at the walking group table.
  • Please make a note of the walking leader’s telephone number and be sure to contact them if you are unable to make the walk.
  • Some walks include a cafe stop. If you would rather bring your own refreshments, please do so.

Next Rambler Walk

April’s ramble will be on Thursday 19th April and will be from Chapeltown, near Turton, up over the moors to Turton & Entwistle reservoir which we will walk all around then down to the Wayoh reservoir and alongside until reaching Chapeltown where we will have lunch in the Chetham Arms. As previously meet up in the TESCO car park near the Clic’n’Collect at 9.45 for a 10.00am departure. Alan Fairey and I did the walk last week, there are some wet bits so boots are recommended. The walk is about 5 miles but no great exertion required.

The Chetham Arms needs food to be booked for parties of more than 10 so please confirm your participation on this walk as soon as poss. I will be away so Alan is once more the leader so please respond to him.

If anyone has a favourite walk and would like to lead it please do not be shy about making  suggestions for May or June. All contributions gratefully received.



for anyone who wants to meet at the pub instead of the TESCO car park the address is:

Telephone: 01204 853597

Chetham Arms, 83 High Street, Chapeltown, Turton, Bolton, BL7 0EW.

    Hi Patricia,
    At the moment we do not have a leader for the group, but we are thinking about doing a re launch but just doing a monthly walk of between 7 to 10 mile. Would you be interested in this ?
