If you've been following Stockport Nordic Walking for a while you may know about the Festivals. I took part in Rustick 2018 which was brilliant. This year we don't have a central base but several Walk Leaders have put walks on around The Peak District.
 
Here is one of the ones I'm offering.
 
Walks open to NWUK Freedom Holders

Longnor was once a junction of important turnpike roads which crossed the Staffordshire Moors.

We will have fine views of Parkhouse Hill and Chrome Hill which were formed under similar conditions to The Great Barrier Reef in Australia, however this was 350million years ago.

This walk shows off some of the few real peaks in the Peak District.

From Chrome Hilll there are fantastic views across the area, we then enter Dowel Dale before passing through Earl Sterndale with it's infamous pub 'The Quiet Woman'

We then ascend High Wheeldon before heading back to the start at Longnor, and optional pub lunch at Ye olde Cheshire Cheese (for more info click HERE)

13km -14km (8-9miles) Highest point is 430m.

The walk includes a short mobilisation of joints prior to walking and a cool down stretch at the end.

Some tips to get the most out of your walk.

2  A small rucksack

Light refreshments (water, fruit juice, etc.)

Mobile phone is useful for any last minute changes

5  Walk Leaders mobile

Welcome to Stockport Nordic Walking

 

Here is a little bit about me.

I’ve had a love for the outdoors and history for as long as I can remember. I love walking my dog and being out and about, be that in parks, woodlands, hills or cities.
