Platt’s hiking group.
When we meet:
Saturday mornings between 8am-10am, once a month.
Where we meet:
At church on a Saturday morning, then take a packed lunch and travel by car to scenic destinations in the area, including the Peak District, North Wales, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.
The Platt Compass Group provides a great opportunity to get out of Manchester into the countryside, visit new places and see great scenery, especially if you do not have your own transport.
Compass Group gives you a chance to get to know some other church members and to chat together. Current numbers on hikes vary from 5 to 30, and everyone is welcome to join at any time. The hikes are advertised in the church notice sheet and are graded as follows:
- Easy: 4-6 miles of walking and fairly flat. About 3 hours of actual walking
- Moderate: 6-9 miles with up to about 1500 feet of climbing. 4-5 hours duration. The majority of hikes are graded moderate
- Strenuous: Longer distances or more climbing, taking up to 7 hours
Waterproof clothing is needed and proper walking boots for moderate or strenuous hikes. We typically advertise the full details of each hike at least two weeks prior to the walk itself, so watch for details in the church bulletin. Please do come along!
