pro-manchester / Freshwalks ‘Sunset Hikes’ – Marple

Date: Wednesday 14th September 2022
Time: 05:00 PM - 08:30 PM
Location: Marple Station Car Par, River Goyt, Roman Lakes,
Cost: £22.15

Welcome to Freshwalks and our latest collaboration event with the largest business development organisation in the North West, Pro Manchester. This sunset walk will be the final one of the 2022 series before we switch to sunrise walks in October.

Please meet at Marple station car park (SK6 7DA) from 17:00.

You can also take the 16:49 train from Manchester Piccadilly due to arrive in Marple at 17:11. The walk will start as soon as the Manchester train arrives (approx 17:15).

Don't forget, you will need to bring drinking water and a picnic which we will take approximately 19:00. We should return to Marple Bridge around 20:30 by which time it will be dark so ideally you'll be able to bring a torch with you for the final 30 mins or so walking. More information will be supplied in the days before the walk.

Route Description

Our plan is to start the evening in Marple, Cheshire and follow the course of the River Goyt past the Roman Lakes. We'll then begin to head gently uphill towards the summit of Mellor Cross (for approx 19:00) where, subject to weather, we should enjoy fine views back across the city. We'll also have a short break so you can refuel with a quick picnic. Thereafter - with the sun setting over Manchester - we'll drop back down to Marple Bridge (with darkness descending) and head to one of the village pubs for a quick drink or even a bite to eat before Freshwalkers make their journeys home.
