Thinking of booking a walking holiday?  Bury HF has joined the Walking Partnership.  This partnership, supported by Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, provides direct financial contributions to local walking groups.  Please remember when you book to quote the name of our group and we will then receive a very useful financial contribution.  It really does make a big difference to us! 

The Walking Partnership

Some of our walks are centered well away from our home town.  Why not make it a special trip by staying over in a youth hostel?  They're not like they used to be!  No duties or bed-making.  You can turn up in your car and you don't even have to be a member!
