Day walkers will find easy transport connections to Macclesfield, Stockport and Manchester at the start and end of each day.

Walkers can join Ann Robinson on a less onerous schedule on shorter stages, e.g. Whaley Bridge to Buxton on Friday, and Buxton to Chapel-en-le-Frith on Saturday. 

 

Social

We are planning to include a number of Social activities, all details will be available on our website in good time. One will hopefully be a group evening meal in either Buxton or Hayfield with an invite to friends and relations. Again, details will be on our website.
