Walk Description:

New Mills Boundary Walk 3

The New Mills Boundary is approximately 18 miles in circumference, the aim of these walkls is to complete the Boundary over a series of walks.Taking in a mixture of Woods, Riverside, Canals, Country Roads and fine views of the surrounding areas too.

On this walk we'll be heading out through Tors Country Park before crossing the Goyt and heading up to the Peak Forest Canal we then descend back to the Goyt and re-cross following paths through farms and passing under the railway we then turn towards New Mills once more and finish our walk on the Sett Vallley Trail.

Approx 7.2km  Gear 1 (maybe 2) 166m ascent overall, please allow 2hours for the walk.

Changes due to Covid-19

Dogs - No dogs on walks until further notice, including my own!

Symptoms – If you have any symptoms, please cancel your walk well in advance. By attending a walk, you confirm you and anyone in your household are symptom free, or have been tested negative. I will be checking my temperature on the morning of walks so may need to cancel at short notice should I develop symptoms.

First Aid - You will need to bring your own basic First Aid Kit (Platers, Bite and Sting Cream, Suncream etc recommended)

Sanitiser - I’d recommend Hand Sanitiser over gloves but the choice is yours. (There will be some available to purchase on the day, (£2.50 with a handy clip, and greater than 65% Alcohol)

Face Coverings - again the choice is yours, but they may be handy if we unexpectedly find it impossible to Socially Distance, or First Aid is required. A scarf or neck gaiter forms part of the governments recommended methods)

Stiles & Gates – Although I will try and keep routes to a minimum of stiles and gates, you need to be able to climb stiles unaided.

Equipment – Please bring your own poles where possible. Hired poles will be wiped down with alcohol gel, and all straps will be machine washed after every use, so no sharing of equipment.

 

Whilst we do understand that sometimes it is not possible to make a class, please be aware that we do operate a no refund policy if you give us less than 24 hours’ notice. To see the full policy click HERE    

Following the social distancing guidelines from NWUK... POLES APART, IN FACT 2 POLES APART!
