Poynton Rambling Club
Walking mainly in the Peak District members are from the suburbs of Stockport in Cheshire including Macclesfield, Cheadle and Wilmslow. You’ll find joining us is an excellent way of meeting new friends as well as a good way to exercise and enjoy the lovely countryside we have in this part of England. There is an organised walk of 8-12 miles every Sunday (except when a weekend away has been organised). On Wednesdays most walks are 8-12 mile but there is a shorter easier walk once per month . There are also evening walks organised on Thursdays from May to Aug. To facilitate lift sharing to the start of the walk, on Sundays, we meet at Hazel Grove Park & Ride Car Park at 9.30. A Google map giving the location of this meeting point can be displayed by clicking this link. (click here). To get directions to this location click "get directions" and enter your home postcode. You will then get detailed directions and estimated travelling time to the location. These arrangements are particularly advantageous for new members, as the location is not far away, and it is easy to navigate to, and you will be with more experienced members travelling to the start of the walk.
For more details on the walks programmes check out the Events Calendar.
If you do decide to try out a walk with us, please be aware that we could be walking across muddy fields on some part of the walk and you do need to have reasonably sturdy water-proof boots. We do not normally stop at a pub or shops during the walk so you do need to bring your provisions for the day with you. Drinks and something to eat for lunch. For those who enjoy a relaxing hour in the pub after the walk, you will almost certainly find a few walkers to join you, but it is not compulsory! Depending on weather conditions we recommend that you bring an anorak, an extra layer of warm clothing, gloves, and overtrousers.
