Manchester Coach Rambles Group Marple Link
« Reply #1 on: March 04, 2015, 06:54:25 AM »
This special board on the forum has been set-up at the request of @marplerambler  to promote a Manchester Coach Rambles Group Marple Link.

Here's Marple Rambler's introduction:

If you are a walker one great disadvantage of living in Marple and wanting to visit the Lakes, the Dales, North Wales and all of those places which are beyond driving distance if you want a full day’s walk all day is that such a prospect seems to be impossible.  Marple Rambling Club, Ramblers Association Stockport and New Mills offer a great programme of car based walks and occasional public transport walks but these walks are rarely more than about thirty miles away from Marple. I came to Marple fifteen years ago and for  twenty five years prior to that had been a regular on the Manchester Coach Ramblers group. It is a great pity that no-one else from Marple to be seems interested. This winter we have coach trips to Hathersage, Arnside, Haworth,, Chipping, Meerbrook, Cartmel, Lllangollen, Ilkley, Ingleton, Ambleside, Church Stretton and Sedburgh.
 
Volunteer coach organisers and leaders organise these non-profit making excursions for Ramblers members. There are three grades of walk on each trip.
 
The Coach leaves Manchester alternate Sundays at 0850 from Manchester Chorlton St and I drive to meet northbound coaches and park at at Prestwich, eastbound coaches at Altrincham and southbound coaches at Stockport or Hazel Grove (coaches on the A6 could also pick up at High Lane and Disley). I would like to set up a Manchester Coach Rambles Marple Link to try to encourage car share for people who need a lift to the coach pick up point  and most important of all put the programme on the Marple Website and write a fortnightly article with photographs for the website to create awareness. This is a super opportunity for Marpudlians to walk in areas that they never thought to be accessible.
 
Can these and subsequent fortnightly articles be incorporated into The Marple Website?
 
Many thanks,
Marple Rambler

The answer of course is yes, and this section of the forum has been created for this purpose.
