All prospective new members are welcome to try a few walks before joining the group properly.

Feel free to come straight out on a walk, no need to book, just turn up (unless the Walks page gives different guidance). The walks details are on the Walks page, but please do read the Before Walking page first.

We have regular pub nights at a location in or near Manchester. You're welcome to come and find out about the group at one of these. Please see the socials page for details.


If you have any member enquiries, email the Membership Secretary.
