Walk Description:

New Mills Boundary Walk 6 (Rowarth)

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

On this walk we drop down towards the Little Mill Inn and then head off towards Shiloh Road where we pass between farms which then climb up towards Cown Edge opening up great views across the valley as we drop back down to the start at Rowarth.

Approx 7km  Gear 1 (maybe 2) with 200m ascent overall, please allow 2hours for the walk

Changes due to Covid-19

Dogs - If you bring a dog it must be on a lead and under control at all times, I use a harness with mine and would be happy to offer advice on buying one, you must also be able to help your dog over stiles etc. where needed.

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. Unfortunately, if you have been sent a letter telling you to self-isolate we won’t be able to walk with you at the moment. There are Online options to help keep your fitness on track.

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. 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. The walk includes a short mobilisation of joints prior to walking and a cool down stretch at the end.

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!
