Stockport Nordic Walking is a Nordic Walking group which has walks in and around the Stockport area with most of our members being new to Nordic Walking. We launched in the September of 2016.
We started walks once a week on Thursdays in Lyme Park NT and now have regular walks listed on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, and are always adding to these.
We also have longer walks at weekends for those who want a more challenging workout with spectacular views.
I’ve had a love for the outdoors and history for as long as I can remember. I love walking my dog and being out and about, be that in parks, woodlands, hills or cities. Anywhere as long as it’s outside! I’m into running, walking, cycling, martial arts, all types of fitness and of course Nordic Walking I like encouraging people to try new things and keep active or challenge themselves and I think Nordic Walking is ideal for this.
Lyme Park NT
Welcome to Lyme. Nestling on the edge of the Peak District, Lyme was once home to the Legh family and, in its heyday a great sporting estate.
Step back in time to the Regency era – a time which saw great rejuvenation for Lyme. Enjoy lavish interiors, try out the piano, read a book in the library, or take the children to play in the nursery and the school room.
The 1,400 acre estate with its medieval herd of red deer offers fantastic walks and stunning views.
For a more tranquil walk explore the elegant Rose Garden, Ravine Garden or the luxurious herbaceous borders next to the reflecting lake where a certain Mr Darcy met Miss Bennet in the BBC production of ‘Pride and Prejudice’.
Children can let off steam in Crow Wood Playscape with its giant slide, badger den and rope walks, whilst the nearby Timber Yard Cafe offers delicious hot and cold snacks, soups and range of cakes.
