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, and walk in good company.
Walk areas are mainly concentrated within a radius of 40 miles of Manchester, but from time to time we venture further afield to Trough of Bowland, North Lancashire, Yorkshire, 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, (usually between Spring and Autumn) two walks are offered, designated 'A' and 'B'. The 'A' walks, being for the more energetic, are between 8-12 miles walking on ridges, fell and moorland tops, whilst the 'B' walks are up to 9 miles walking in hills and valleys at a more sedate pace. General weekly attendance between these walks are 20-30 on average.
Please do get in touch if you would like to join us.
We are a friendly group who organise regular socials, curry nights etc.
During the summer months various coach trips, weekend camping, bunkhouse and hostel accommodation, all with a walking theme, are arranged.
Further, over the last five years, some Members have enjoyed walking holidays abroad in Malta, Austria, Switzerland, Majorca and Bulgaria.
