Saddleworth Pedestrians

Introduction to our club

Saddleworth Pedestrians known affectionately to its friends as "The Peds" was formed forty four years ago and we currently have a membership of about 100, from in and around the Saddleworth area. Decent from Scarfell PikesOur members represent a broad range of backgrounds and interests but have a common enthusiasm for walking and hiking and a keen and informed concern for our countryside. We have a walks committee who organise a programme of fortnightly Sunday walks which is published every six months. They are all lead by members and are broken down into 'A', 'B' and 'C' categories. Full details of these walks, summer evening walks and other social events refer to our walks programme page.

In addition to walking in the Saddleworth area we do travel farther afield to Derbyshire, Yorkshire and the south Lancashire Pennines. Although we use private transport lifts are readily available for those who need them and for this reason we always meet at Lees library before travelling to the start of the walk.

If you have read this far you must be interested so why not be our guest on one or two walks you'll be most welcome. Then if you enjoy them you can become a member.
