If you want to use public transport and would like to go on guided walks in the Peak District, then this feature is for you! The walks are free. All you need do is select a walk from the Transpeak Website that you feel comfortable with, book it and make sure you arrive at the start of the walk on time and with all your gear. Walk leaders reserve the right to refuse anyone not suitably equipped, and whilst every care is taken on the guided walks, no liability can be accepted for accident or loss.
Walks are a group of enthusiastic volunteers, formed in 2005 to take
responsibility for running and co-ordinating a varied programme of
guided walks based on the use of public transport to access the Peak
District National Park situated between the two great industrial cities
of Manchester and Sheffield.
All of the guided walks are led by experienced walk leaders and assistants. Safety of the group will always be the main priority and a person qualified in First Aid will accompany every group. Anyone with special needs, should inform the walk leader before the start of the walk.
Transpeak Walks aim to cater for people of all abilities and provide a wide variety of walks. The programme of guided walks are based on the use of public transport to access the Peak District National Park. These range from very easy to extremely strenuous. Routes may be varied in exceptional circumstances, particularly in the case of bad weather.
There is a
very real need to maintain a programme of guided walks based
specifically around the use of public transport, for which there are a
number of reasons.
reduces the impact on the environment (i.e. fewer cars = reduced
pollution & congestion, lower greenhouse gas emissions, etc).
