Marsden WaW launch the inaugural Marsden Walking Weekend

Marsden Walkers are Welcome are busy putting the finishing touches to a weekend of walks, talks, film and food.

The weekend will run across 15th and 16th of September this year, during the South Pennines Walk and Ride Festival.

As well as coinciding with the Walk and Ride Festival, the weekend will see the launch of five redesigned waymarked route leaflets, as well as the launch of The Marsden Film and Television Trail. The Film and TV Trail is a 4-mile circular walk around the village that uncovers some of the locations made famous by film and television companies over the last few decades.

The weekend features a great choice of guided walks: from woodland to moorland, from shorter walks to more challenging hikes (the themed ‘Poetry Trail’ creates a loop 10 miles long across beautiful, rugged moorland).

As well as the walks (some being family friendly) the weekend comprises of stalls in The Mechanics Institute from a host of community and ‘outdoorsy’ organisations and vendors, plus daytime and evening food as well as evening music and film and bar (of course!).
