Welcome to Failsworth Walking Group

We are a local group of walkers/hikers who live in and around the Failsworth Manchester area.

We have been walking together for almost 2 years now

We’ve been around as a group since 2019 and now have around 2k members, we offer a variety of walks to suit you and many other like-minded people – whatever your level of fitness. New members are always more than welcome!

Our walks and other activities

We have a varied itinerary of day walks at weekends and also evening weekday throughout the year, we cover street walking, off the beaten track local walks, the peaks and fells and we also hit the mountains, and in the winter months we do torch walks, we also love a good sunrise and sunset, and not forgetting a good Sunday Pub Lunch.

We use both car and public transport to access the many excellent walking areas around Manchester and beyond, we also explore the lakes, the peak district and surrounding areas and where possible we are happy to car share.

We also do overnight camping events which very popular as they give our members a cost-effective and social way to explore other areas of the country not so easily accessible with a day trip

We do have some wild swimmers within the group and love finding a tarn along the way

We also do events for the children, Halloween walks, we often feed the reindeers in the winter months again you can find these on the events page

Our walks suit all abilities – we are very welcoming! We have walkers who just enjoy the occasional short and easy stroll to those who regularly hike at weekends. Join our walks if you enjoy meeting people, love the outdoors, and local history.

You will find all our walks in the events tab on our Facebook page “Failsworth Walking Group” (pleases see the link below

Our walks are open to anyone and you don’t even need to book you just turn up. Our events tab lets you know all the information you need for a particular walk, from the length, grade and approximate duration, as well as where we are going to meet.

We recommend that you wear a good pair of walking boots, and comfy clothing and always have waterproofs in your rucksack .
