Easy Walking Group

Meet 9.40am every Monday at the Leisure Centre, Priory Lane, Macclesfield, where cars can often be shared.
This is a group of friendly people, who choose to walk between 3.5 and 4.5 miles of fairly flat or undulating ground but at a reasonably good pace.
The group does not have a regular leader but on each Monday the walk for the following week will be announced.
We welcome new walkers who should arrive at the meeting point by 9.40am.
