Event description

Description

Marple - Peak Forest Canal - River Goyt - Brabyns Park - Marple (approx 6.5km)

GRADE: EASY (2 HOURS)

Welcome to Freshwalks, bringing together North West business folk in the great outdoors. This time, as part of Greater Manchester Walking Week (organised by TfGM) we are hosting an inclusive and very special free taster event. We are walking from Marple Station along the Peak Forest Canal, River Goyt and then back through Brabyns Park to where we started.

Our plan is to reinvigorate both body and soul, allowing participants to make new contacts, to share personal and business challenges and gain some fresh perspective. All within a scenic setting that will allow clear thinking and new ideas to flourish.

We intend to take the 13.49 train from Manchester Piccadilly to arrive in Marple at 14.10. Please feel free to join us at either location. But DO be on time.

We expect to be back in Marple around 16.15 where we will head to the Midland which is a fair-sized pub and should be fine to accommodate our group for a couple of drinks and some food.

A fantastic way to start your week.

FAQs

What should I wear?
Much will depend upon the weather. You will need to wear proper walking shoes or boots, bring along some waterproofs and a couple of layers to cater for potentially wet and/or cold weather conditions. A full kit list will be sent out prior to the walk.

I'm a little unfit, should I come along?
This is a very easy walk (compared to most Freshwalks hikes) and the route has been designed to include as many of you as possible. However, I'd still suggest you need to have some level of fitness. If you haven't done any form of exercise recently, this might be an initial step too far and we'd recommend at least some walking on the level as preparation.
