Leader Paul G - meeting the group at the walk start at Broadbottom
Description: This area near the Peak District sees fewer walkers. This short walk twist and turns to use old paths and lanes that past communities needed to attend work and markets. It starts in the historical past, passes lonely farms and outbuildings now redeveloped, climbs over moors to reach the high ridge with its views, before returning through ancient woodlands.
Meet Point – Manchester Piccadilly for the 10.33 train.
Suggested Ticket – Day ticket to Broadbottom £5.90 return
Walk start – Broadbottom Station 11.00
Waypoints - Hodge Fold, Botham Hall, Cown Edge Way, Chisworth, Robin Hoods Picking Rods, Coombes Edge, Charlesworth, Woodseat
Return services – x.29 and x.59 till the last train at 23.00
Extras – No toilets at the walk start, use the trains.

We usually visit a pub close to the station at the end of the walk, and everybody is very welcome to come along. You may want to make a note of the return train times as people return home at different times.

This is a circular walk
If meeting at Piccadilly station, the group usually gather near the platform from where the train departs. Even if you don't see anybody else we recommend getting on the train as you will find people at the destination.
