Meet & Travel arrangements - Car Sharing

For car share walks, we meet at a convenient Manchester location and drive to the walk start using as few cars as possible. This keeps fuel costs and emissions down. Passengers please remember to contribute towards fuel costs at the end of the day.

If you are driving, please make every effort to attend the Ferguson House, 11 Blackfriars Road, Salford meet point as some people may depend on a lift to get to the walk start. For further information, email walks@madwalkers.org.uk, especially if you intend to drive there directly.

Remember the clocks go back so you get an extra hour in bed (but it gets darker sooner!).

Please bring a torch.

We have to cross Langden Brook 2 miles from the end. There is no alternative route (especially with the earlier nights), so it is possible you may get your feet wet! We suggest you bring a change of shoes to leave in the cars.

Toilets: last toilets are in Dunsop Bridge car park.
