Meandering along the Mersey
20 people attending
0 places left
This is a short and flat 8.5km walk starting at Sale Water Park (easy tram access), ending with an optional Sunday dinner at the pub by the river.
Whilst this is an easy walk, it may be muddy - so boots are advised. Additionally, if rainfall is bad and paths are unsuitable, the walk may have to be cancelled, though this is unlikely.
The idea for this walk is something straight forward, local, easy to get to, and social.
Starting at 10, with Pub Lunch booked for 12:15. Please let me know if you are not joining for lunch.

What to bring
Water: bring at least a litre
Medicines: if you have hay fever, diabetes, minor ailments etc.
Rucksack: or any other bag
Footwear: hiking boots, sturdy trainers or wellies
Layered clothing: lets you quickly adapt to changes in the weather and body temperature. Go for a base layer (vest or t-shirt) and a mid layer (a micro fleece or shirt) and in cooler weather add an outer layer (a windproof jacket or thick fleece)
Trousers: ideally not jeans which become heavy and cold in the rain, breathable fabrics are more comfortable and dry and on warm days shorts are OK
Waterproof jacket: breathable fabrics are more comfortable and dry
Hat or cap: stay warm in winter and shaded in summer
Sunglasses: for any sunny day, even in winter
Sun cream: can be useful even on cloudy and winter days
Snacks: bring biscuits, energy bars, gels, bananas, chocolate or dried fruit for example and put them somewhere easy to get hold of
