Take it Easy : an easy day's stroll from Rose Hill

Manchester Ramblers Wednesday Group walk to Rose Hill 20.05.2015.

If you have just retired and suddenly discover that you have time on your hands and think that you would like to discover some of the super countryside of Greater Manchester has to offer you may sometimes you feel may feel like taking an easy walk to enjoy the improving weather but fear that a walking club’s activities might be just a bit too difficult for you think again! Manchester Ramblers offer an easy stroll and the opportunity to make a lot of new friends every Wednesday.

One such walk was our stroll from Marple Rose Hill to High Lane and back last Wednesday. One thing that never ceases to astonish newcomers who have just retired and who have never taken part in any walking group activities in the past is that there is so much pleasant countryside on the back-doorstep that you never realised was there. The paths on our walk offered generous helpings of garlic, bluebells, forget-me-nots, rhododendrons, robins, blackbirds, nosey horses, curious cows, lots of lambs, the occasional rabbit, railway tracks converted to paths, little gems of cottages with fantastic gardens, golf courses, woods and even local park benches for lunch: in short, a perfect way to relax for a few hours with a bit of exercise thrown in.

It was a real pleasure to go along and show off the area to a large group of walkers from all around Greater Manchester.

If you have just retired there could not be a better way to enjoy the spare time you have worked for the last forty years. Check out Stockport Walkaday on the Internet if you would like an afternoon stroll (though they offer lots besides).

Marple Rambling Club offer four grades of walk on Thursday plus Sunday walks.
