We are a large and highly active GOC group based in the North of England. Our region encompasses a vast swathe of fascinating and diverse landscape stretching coast to coast from Lancashire & Cheshire in the west to Yorkshire in the east and taking in much of the Pennines, Peak District, Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors plus all the lesser-known vales and hills in between and including Greater Manchester & Merseyside.
To cover this enormous area we organise a large selection of interesting walks and cycle rides of varied length and difficulty. Walks take place on both Saturday & Sunday at the weekends. In Summer we arrange some short weekday evening walks followed by a social drink. For the more adventurous there are monthly hostel or camping weekends where members can socialise and enjoy visiting areas further afield such as the Lake District and North Wales.
Our friends at Northern Wave Swimming Club run swimming evenings on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Sundays in Manchester.
Guests can expect a warm welcome on our Events. Those wishing to join us can obtain full details by contacting us via the email contact form at the bottom of this page
The Group Coordinator for Transpennine is Jim Armitage who is assisted by Rob & Pete for the Saturday Cheshire walks and Sarah and Simon for the other events
