A good linear walk venturing to parts not regularly visited by the group. This was reccied mid-February and was muddy so please bring appropriate kit. There will be two small stream crossings on the walk.
Note: Based on the reccie we will be aiming to get the 16:50 train back, however if you are making plans for after the walk, please factor in that we maybe on the 17:50 train. The return train arrives into Manchester Victoria.
