Guided Walks

Discover the history, culture and people of Saddleworth, the Peak District and South Pennines on our regular guided Discovery Walks . Each walk is led by Chris Maylor, an experienced guide and author of the locally acclaimed Saddleworth Discovery Walks and Oldham Discovery Walks guidebooks.

We also offer an exciting calendar of guided day walks throughout the beautiful and dramatic landscapes of the Peak District and South Pennines. With a wealth of interesting routes available, we can cater for all fitness levels and abilities and can even offer bespoke walks to those wanting to explore a particular area or engage in a challenging outing.

For those looking for something even more challenging, why not take part in one of our guided, long distance challenge walks or enjoy your own micro-adventure on an overnight, guided wild camping trip.
