Tuesday / Area Coach
The first Area Tuesday Coach outing in 2018 is on March 6th to the Yorkshire market town of Hebden Bridge. You can wander its creative, bohemian streets and you can feel the influence of the writers and artists who flocked to the village around the 70s and 80s. From artisan shops and inspiring galleries to organic pavement cafes and charming picture houses, the village is justifiably proud of its artistic identity. Just a few minutes away you will find pretty wooded valleys and picturesque heather moorland where our usual two walks will take place. Please join us for the walks or just to explore the town, its history, canals park and river by yourselves.

Following a very successful programme in 2017, we hope you will continue to support the Area Coach in 2018.

We always need leaders , particularly for the shorter walks, so if you can volunteer to lead a walk please do so. We can offer support and help in planning walks.

About the coach
Welcome to the home of the Area Ramblers coach. We run a coach every four weeks, picking up in Stretton, Stockton Heath and Culcheth travelling far and wide to areas that offer superb scenery and fine walking. Once there, we offer 2 grades of walks, ranging from a leisurely/moderate one of about 6/7 miles duration to a harder moderate walk of 8-9 miles with up to 1500ft of ascent. You will need to bring boots, waterproof clothing (just in case!) and a packed lunch with a drink.
You'll have time for refreshments before we set off back home at 17.00 hours, and you'll even be able to have a sleep on the way back as you won't be doing the driving! We are a friendly,fun and welcoming group and would love it if you could join us. Our full programme is shown below and at the bottom of the page you can see who is leading each of the walks.
To book, or for further details, please text Sheila Sheedy on 07519 810331 or click here to send her an e-mail. Note: please do not leave a voicemail message as it costs us to retrieve it.
