Walking in the Eyre


On 10th November 2013 at 9am we are congregating in the car park at Tesco in Parrs Wood Didsbury where lifts to the Peak District for this fabulous Sunday walk are available

Join us and enjoy ‘Walking in the Eyre, ‘ well sort of…. we bet that is a Christmas song you can’t get out of your head!!!?



A great little reminder for Christmas being on its way and its wrap up warm time to enjoy a picturesque and fun walk with friends to get the blood flowing and to bring out those rosy cheeks.
This walk sees us heading over to Hathersage and Stanage Edge, where the nearby North Lees Hall was the inspiration for Thornfield Hall, Mr Rochester’s home in Jane Eyre (the hall was actually occupied by a real Eyre family until the 17th century).


I read it in a book, so it must be true.

You don’t get on an ‘edge’ in the Peak District without a bit of a pull uphill, and the walk is about 9 miles in total.  We should be rewarded with great views from the top though, over Kinder Scout, Mam Tor and the Derwent Valley.

Afterwards we’ll get a slap-up meal in a pub.

Definitely boots rather than trainers (but bring some to change into afterwards for the pub and ride home).


Now, with the weather getting colder and more likely to rain, it’s strongly suggested that jeans are a bad idea.  Wet cotton is heavy and loses heat.





Regular walking can…

  •     fill you with energy and confidence
  •     help you beat stress
  •     make your heart fitter and strengthen your bones
  •     help you keep your weight down
