Our Classic walks are the original Freshwalks experience; in the countryside, on the coast, in the mountains and on the moorlands. From easy half-day 8km rambles to epic full-day 30km treks, these walks offer the perfect blend of networking and exercise all year round. No matter the weather.
Allow yourself or your team a day out of the office to boost physical fitness, improve mental wellbeing and bond with other like-minded business professionals over a shared sense of achievement.
The rush of adrenaline and release of endorphins will almost certainly tinge you with that legendary Freshwalks feeling. It’s positively contagious. And if not, the home-cooked pub food and locally brewed ales will surely do the trick for you.
Disley – Bollinhurst Reservoir – Lyme Park – The Cage – Disley
Join us for a semi-rural short countryside walk out of Disley village with stunning hillside views.
A circular route, based out of the Cheshire village of Disley, this will be a superb spring evening hike with fabulous views of rural surroundings. Please note that if the Park remains closed after 4.30pm (as it currently is) we’ll take an alternative route up Black Hill instead; timings will be unaltered.
Pleasington – Witton Country Park – Billinge Hill – Hoghton Bottoms – River Darwen – Pleasington
Join us for a stunning rural ramble that explores the suburban fringes of Blackburn and paying homage to the greatest fellwalker of all. Starting at Pleasington station, we climb up into the Yellow Hills before dropping down to the River Darwen at Hoghton Bottoms to admire the cascades then returning to the start point to catch an afternoon train back into town.
West Kirby – Red Rocks – Hilbre Island – West Kirby
A glorious riverside and woodland walk as we network along the Bollin Valley.
This time we are heading back to Styal Country Park – a perfect entry level walk for Freshwalkers of all abilities and especially those with limited time to join us. Please note that though we’d describe this route as flat there are some very occasional slightly strenuous up and down (steps) sections. You can take your time though!
Old Glossop – Cock Hill – Clough Edge – Bleaklow Head – Higher Shelf Stones – Doctor’s Gate – Old Glossop
A vintage Dark Peak experience exploring Bleaklow and Higher Shelf Stones from Old Glossop.
We’ll climb steeply towards Cock Hill before reaching Clough Edge and sweeping out towards Bleaklow and Higher Shelf Stones.
Elvaston Castle – Derwent Valley Heritage Way – Ambaston – Elvaston Castle
We’re heading back to the gorgeous and historic Elvaston Castle Country Park. We’ll explore its maze of paths and further afield, the Derwent Valley Heritage Way at a leisurely pace so guests can network while exercising.
After a leisurely walk, we’ll either head to the cafe in the courtyard or take a picnic lunch somewhere appropriate in the grounds, abiding by whatever rules are in place at the time.
Edale – Ringing Roger – Kinder Low – Jacob’s Ladder – Edale
Welcome to Freshwalks, and better late than never, the first of our events created exclusively for the Property sector.
We are taking on a superb circular route out of the village of Edale in the Hope Valley but only 40 minutes from Manchester via train. This walk will blend beautiful valley views with wild, rugged moorland. The first hour of the walk will see us move uphill at a steady pace as we climb onto Kinder Scout but thereafter we walk more or less on the level at 600m+ before our descent back into Edale a few hours later.
Ilkley – Cow and Calf – Burley Moor – Twelve Apostles – Ilkley
Join us for a Springtime moorland walk from the picturesque town of Ilkley, situated in the Wharfe Valley, at the southern end of the Yorkshire Dales.
We’ll initially head south out of Ilkley towards the moor, climbing up above The Tarn, passing through ferns and woodland to reach the Dales Way. The route heads east towards the Cow and Calf gritstone outcrops before heading off deep into the moors and circling back. A classic, rewarding moorland hike.
