A gentle 6.5 mile walk from Marsden in the Peak District, the walk has a steep ascent up to Standedge, after a picnic with views over the Pennines we descend slowly back towards Marsden.
I suggest we will meet in Marsden station at 9.45am. Suggested train is:
09:08 Leeds [LDS] Platform 16A to 09:42 Marsden Platform 3
If you are going by train aim to be at Leeds train station at 8.45 to buy a ticket and we can meet on the train.
This walk will go ahead irrespective of the weather so please bring:
flask of drink
water proofs/suntan lotion (depending on the weather)
Some climbing of ladder styles may be involved but the pace will be amiable around the 6.5 miles, due to the ascent, you will need to be in a good state of health to undertake the walk. If people want we can stop in Marsden after the walk at a local pub as the trains back to Leeds are quite regular. Trains back are at: 15.59, 16.59, 17.29, 17.59. I will aim to get everyone back for the 15.59 but as always this will depend on the speed of the group so no guarentees. Anyone who absolutely must make a specifc time back should tell me before the walk starts and I will see what I can do.
This walk is led by volunteers, not professionals, so you take your own risk being on the walk. Any questions or problems on the day please phone John on[masked]
