The walk to Uppermill has therefore been rescheduled to be our first walk of the 2012 season on Saturday 10th March 2012
Our first walk of the season will be in the delightful rolling hills of Saddleworth, an area of much community culture and friendly welcomes
One unique local sport played in Uppermill is “cobbling”. It involves a barrel of cobblestones, a closed road and a bag of cement. You will have to visit to find out more!
The canal which runs through the town offers many recreational pursuits. Traffic-free walks along the towpath, fishing and boating are just some of the rural pleasures to be enjoyed. The canal has a couple of locks to manage the inclines and there is an impressive viaduct which it passes beneath.
Saddleworth is rolling countryside and valleys, so there will be plenty of 'ups and downs' giving variety and pleasure. Details of the walks will be posted here about 1 week beforehand.
The coach will park by the Swimming Baths just up the hill from the village centre, approx 10 minutes walk. The toilets are in the park at the centre of the village.
