Marple District Rambling Club

Affiliated to the Ramblers Association and the Peak and Northern Footpaths Society


 Walking for Pleasure

Marple District Rambling Club is a very friendly walking club. It was founded in 1967 and now has around 350 members.

By organising walks of different distances, graded according to difficulty, varying from 5 miles to over 20 miles, we offer walks to suit all abilities. Walks are organised every week throughout the year on Sundays and Thursdays and led by experienced walkers. Members choose which walk according to destination or length of walk or how much time they have available. Usually there is a choice of at least 3 walks and sometimes 5. Some members walk twice a week but many less often.

The club meets monthly for a social evening and also offers weekend walking breaks and longer walking holidays at home and abroad.

The walking programme is sent to members every 4 months and this lists all the forthcoming walks and social events.

Walk Ratings Mileage
S - Strenuous A.... 11 miles and over
M - Moderate  B....9 to 11
E - Easy C....6 to 8
D....up to 6
E....up to 3
Meeting Place for all walks is Brabyns Brow or Brabyns Park car parks promptly at the times stated in the programme.
