Hope – Aston – Win Hill – Hope
Mapperley Reservoir – Cinderhill Coppice – Shipley Hill – Mapperley Wood – Mapperley Reservoir
For our third event in the East Midlands, we’re heading to Shipley Country Park near Ilkeston starting and finishing our walk at nearby Mapperley Reservoir.
Shipley Country Park offers 700 acres of attractive and varied landscape. We’ll explore the countryside and woods around the area at a leisurely pace so guests can network while exercising.
Edale – Jaggers Clough – Ladybower Reservoir – Win Hill – Lose Hill – Back Tor – Hollins Cross – Mam Tor – Edale
Hebden Bridge – Stoodley Pike – Hebden Bridge
Join us for a glorious hike to the monument which dominates the rugged moorland of the upper Calder Valley: Stoodley Pike.
This classic circular walking route, starting in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, is perfectly located for the business communities of both Manchester and Leeds to join us for some fantastic networking in the hills.
Dunham Massey Circular
This time we are heading back to Dunham Massey – a perfect entry-level for Freshwalkers of all abilities and especially those with limited time to join us.
We intend to start the walk from the main car park and will set a very gentle pace around the grounds of this wonderful National Trust estate. Depending on government guidance at the time, we may then head to a nearby cafe or pub to continue conversations into the afternoon (optional).
Sheen Gate – Beverley Brook Walk – King Clump – Petersham Park – Sheen Gate
We mark our debut in the capital city with a glorious autumn stroll around Richmond Park, the largest of its Royal Parks.
We’ll take a clockwise loop inside the perimeter of the park, moving at a gentle pace all attendees are comfortable with. We’ll stop halfway round for a picnic break, the length of which will be weather dependent before looping back to the start.
Pendleton – Nick of Pendle – Pendle Hill – Pendleton
This nine-mile circuit avoids the busy honeypot routes to explore the lesser-known crags, cloughs and ghylls on the rugged slopes of Pendle.
We start in the pretty village of Pendleton and climb to the Nick o’ Pendle before walking along whaleback ridge to reach the summit trig on the ‘Big End’ for outstanding views over the Ribble Valley, Forest of Pendle and up to the Limestone country of the Yorkshire Dales.
On a clear day, the Lakeland Fells and even the mountains of Snowdonia should be visible. We return via the western edge of the summit plateau descending beside one of the steep cloughs on the western flank to return to our start point.
Edale – Mam Tor – Hollins Cross – Back Tor – Lose Hill – Hope
We invite you to join us for some uphill, early morning walking before hopefully witnessing a glorious morning sunrise.
The plan is to leave the village immediately and quickly pick up the paths that climbs towards Mam Tor – aiming to arrive at the top (517m) by sunrise at 07:32. It will require a fairly steady pace to do so. After a short break, we’ll then walk along the ridge towards Lose Hill, facing the sunrise. We should arrive in Hope before 10:00 where we will head to the Tea Rooms at the Old Hall Hotel for a traditional Derbyshire breakfast (subject to government guidelines at the time).
Please note, it is ideal (but not compulsory) to have a head torch for this event.
