  • A footpath clearance team.

You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore. Just turn up at the starting point with your boots, waterproofs and some lunch. If you enjoy your day with us it's just a case of becoming a member.

Dogs are only accepted on walks at the discretion of the leader and must be kept on a SHORT lead at all times. Please check first, some leaders have stated Registered Assistance dogs only and they should contact the walk leader in advance to discuss requirements.

​2020 Events

​HF Weekend at Malhamdale, 2 or 3 nights 19th March 2021. Contact Debbie at - debed67@hotmail.com

Alfa coach holiday with John and Marion, Exmouth 12th - 18th April 2020. Alpha has cancelled the holiday and is writing letters asking us to accept the holiday to be rescheduled for a future date. John and I have decided NOT to accept a rescheduled holiday. It is entirely up to you to decide but we do not know what will happen in the future. If you have paid by credit card you can contact them saying the holiday is cancelled and you would like a refund on your credit card (section 75 consumer credit act). If you have paid by debit card there ios a voluntary agreement by VISA, Mastercard, Maestro and American Express to refund you in the same way known as 'Chargeback'. In both cases you need to advise Alpha but I suggest you contact your bank first ASAP. When all this is over John and I will organise another trip. Marion.


Our group also has a page on facebook called Oldham Ramblers.
