Trafford Walkers are based in Manchester.
We are a small and friendly walking club, established for over 25 years, whose members are mainly from the local area.
Some of the most varied and beautiful countryside in the whole of the UK is on our doorstep, and the Club exists to give people of mixed abilities the chance to enjoy it whilst walking in good company.
Walk venues are usually within a radius of 40 miles from Trafford, but from time to time we venture further afield to areas such as the Trough of Bowland, North Lancashire, the Yorkshire Dales, Wales and the Lake District.
The programme of walks alternates each week with the walk on Saturday one week and on Sunday the following week.
Wherever possible, two walks are offered each weekend throughout the year, listed as (a) and (b) on the Walks Programme.
The 'A' walks are aimed at our more energetic and experienced walkers, and are normally between 8 and 12 miles in length. They usually include a significant amount of climbing to reach ridges, fells and high moorland, and are taken at a brisk pace.
The 'B' walks are normally 7 to 9 miles long, and can include walking in hills and valleys at a more sedate pace.
Total weekly attendance between these walks are 20-30 on average.
Members are free to join any walk offered by the Club, provided that they meet the requirements of the Walkers section Club's Safe Walking Policy.
If you would like to join us please have a look at "Joining Us" and get in touch.
We are a friendly group who organise regular curry nights etc.
During the summer months a number of coach trips and walking based holidays are arranged.
Further, over the last five years groups of Members have enjoyed walking holidays abroad in Malta, Austria, Switzerland, Majorca and Bulgaria.
