Programme Planning

Transpennine Regions

To provide a balanced programme each month we adopt the following general approach for day events:

  • 1st weekend - Lancashire & Yorkshire (Northern Region)
  • 2nd weekend - Saturday walks in Cheshire & Environs (second Saturday of month)
  • 3rd weekend - Peak District & South Pennines
  • 4th weekend - Lancashire & Yorkshire (Northern Region)

Weekends away may be arranged for any weekend of the month - the organisers take into account the availability of the accommodation to be used when deciding which weekend to select.


Scheduling of Events

Each autumn the Transpennine programme for the following year is assembled. 

All our events are run by volunteer members. We are always keen for new people to participate in running events. If you have an idea for a walk, cycle ride, weekend away or maybe a social event, please contact us

We normally hold planning meetings in October for the Saturday Cheshire walks & in November for the other Transpennine Regions.
