New To Walking

General information if you are interested in joining us


All the Stockport Ramblers forthcoming walks are listed on this website and you are welcome to try us out on a couple of walks free of charge, but after that you will have to join the Ramblers Association.  If you wish to receive a printed copy of our programme please complete the form on the “contact us” tab on this website or send an sae to Stockport Ramblers, c/o 38 Avondale Avenue, Hazel Grove, Stockport SK7 4QE.  


Our walks are circular unless stated otherwise.   To join a walk, you will need warm waterproof clothing (jeans are unsuitable) and walking boots (not trainers or ordinary shoes).  You will also need to bring plenty to drink and a packed lunch (unless it is one of our summer evening walks).  To find out further details about a walk, you can ring the walkleader on the number given.  


We do not tailor our walks to suit public transport although some of the starting points are accessible by train or bus routes.  Unfortunately we do not offer lifts to those without their own transport as this would be too complicated to arrange, but if you are without your own transport there are a number of other walking groups in the area that do use public transport and a lifts system.


Stockport Ramblers is part of the nationwide Ramblers Association.
