Glossop, "the Gateway to the Peak", is in the extreme north west of Derbyshire, surrounded by the most magnificent scenery of the Peak District and yet only 14 miles from Manchester's city centre and 24 miles from Sheffield.
Glossop & District Heritage Trust is conducting two evening walks on respectively the 28 June and 5 July 2016. Each walk starts at 7.30.
Both of our evening walks this year will draw on material from Robert Hamnett’s walks. It is anticipated that both walks will take about an hour but sometimes we get carried away.
“A Walk Down the Street”: 28 June 2016 - 7.30pm: meet on the municipal car park (the market ground).
The walk down the street will go from the traffic lights as far as Shrewsbury Street and then back along the riverbank to the municipal car park.
Hamnett in fact walked his audience from the town centre to Melandra but we think that is perhaps a bit too far.
“A Walk Round Whitfield”: 5 July 2016 - 7.30pm:
meet at the junction of Gladstone Street, Freetown, Whitfield Cross and Ebenezer Street.
The Whitfield walk will involve walking up Whitfield Avenue to Hague Street. We will return down Whitfield Cross.
Nonetheless Whitfield Avenue does go uphill so there will be some uphill walking on this.
Both walks are entirely free - pass the message around please. We might pass the hat round. Click Here to learn more about Robert Hamnett.
The amount of the donation has to be entered in GB Pounds but it will be taken in your local currency so you will incur no currency conversion charges.
Please ensure that your country of residence is selected on the PayPal form so that the screen is formatted appropriately for entry of your address.
