Welcome to the Rochdale Ramblers
- Category: Articles
The Rochdale Group was established in October 1994 and are part of the Manchester and High Peak Area of the Ramblers Association.
Currently we have 210 members and new members are always welcome.
We organise walks on a weekends and alternate Thursdays. Most of the walks are in and around the South Pennine area and are off road in rural areas. Thursday walks are usually 6 to 7.5 miles and of a moderate grade. Weekend walks are on alternate Saturdays and Sundays, normally moderate grade and between 7.5 and 12 miles. We also organise leisurely Saturday walks once a month of about 5 miles and some social events.
See the Walks tabs opposite for details of the current walking schedule and further information. See the yellow popup at the top of the page for a definition of the walk difficulty. The current walks programme is available from local libraries. The walks are advertised in various places including Rochdale Online. For more information on a walk, please contact the walk leader.
During the summer months we occasionally organise coach trips to walk further afield. There is a charge for these trips and places must be booked with the walk leader, see the walks programme.
