Ged Austin, known in Manchester as “The Urban Poet”, will be running another of his Guided Walks on Sunday 3rd July 2022.
These walks are typically gentle strolls over a 3- to 5-mile distance with plenty of stops, and they can take 3 to 4 hours.
The latest Guided Walk that Ged has prepared will be a Handforth Circular route, starting and ending at Handforth train station. It will be a “timeline walk” exploring the history of the area. It will feature Ged’s poems and some stories about the area, to which all are welcome to contribute.
Ged advises, “Expect adventure, history, nature, a few giggles, and walking and talking. Bring plenty of liquid and your snack in a backpack , and wear sturdy footwear and clothing appropriate for whatever the weather provides.”
The Friends of Handforth Station are organising this series of walks, and Hugh Everett, Secretary of FoHS, says “Take the train ! This walk is designed to suit travel using Northern Trains: the service from Manchester via Stockport gets to Handforth at 10:16, and the service from Crewe via Wilmslow gets in at 10:25.”
This Guided Walk will start from Handforth train station at 10.30am sharp, on Sunday the 3rd of July. No booking needed; just turn up before 10:30.
