Welcome to the walking group at The Salvation Army – Openshaw. We are a small informal group and we welcome everyone of any age and ability.
Our walks and other activities
Once a month on a Wednesday (usually 2nd or 3rd of the month) we meet at The Salvation Army on Lime Square in Openshaw, M11 1DA at 10.15am and take a relaxed stroll up the canal to Fairfield Marina, get a cup of tea and walk back.
It’s a fairly flat canal towpath, but there is a cobbled section and a couple of narrow entrances making it difficult for wheelchairs and wide buggies.
The walk is about 2 miles long, but we break halfway for a visit to a cafe. We will also adapt our speed to whoever is walking, so there’s never any rush!
Our walk is suitable for beginners.
Get in touch for further information; we look forward to seeing you soon.
If you’re planning to come it helps to let us know by email or phone (0161 371 5044) and we’ll make sure we don’t set off without you!
