Shining Tor near Macclesfield – on the Cheshire/Derbyshire border


Event Details


Covid-19 - getting back outdoors

Our groups in England are now able to offer events, starting from the 18th of July, with a maximum of six participants on each event.  To take part in any of these events you must book using the ticketed booking system.  If the event you are looking at does not show ticket options it is either fully booked, or has not yet been set up to take bookings. Our Scottish and Welsh groups are still not able to run events at this time, but we hope this will change in the near future as guidance from the relevant governments is updated.
