Patrick Pope
An easy, flat and scenic walk on good paths, approximately 6.5 miles along part of the Huddersfield Canal from Greenfield to the start of the Stanedge Tunnel at Diggle. There will be a stop for lunch just after reaching the tunnel, and the opportunity for a drink/snack at the Kingfisher Pub at the end of the walk.
Start Point and Time
Meet at 12.30 pm in the car park of the Kingfisher Pub on Chew Valley Rd, Greenfield (OL3 7AE)
Directions to Start
From Oldham, take the A669 (Lees Rd roundabout just past Mumps Metrolink Station). Follow this for a few miles until you reach the junction with the A670, Mossley Road at the Farrar Arms Pub. Continue straight onto the A669 for less than a mile, until you reach the sign for Greenfield. Take the sharp right turn and go down the hill, past the station, round the bend until you see the Kingfisher Pub almost immediately on your left, just before Tesco. Park (free) at the rear of the pub car park.
Alternatively, trains run from Manchester Piccadilly, usually platform 1 at 31 mins past the hour. It takes 22 mins to Greenfield, then walk down the hill to the pub.

Changes and cancellation 
In the event that there are any changes to the regulations (for example a further lockdown) before the walk, which means that it will not be able to proceed, an email will be sent to everyone booked on the walk. Very occasionally, due to severe weather or another serious event, a walk may be cancelled. In these instances, a note will be added to the website at least TWO hours before Start Time. So, do check the website before you set out, and if in doubt use the walk leader’s mobile contact number.
If you need to cancel contact general@outonsunday.co.uk. If it’s on the day please call the Walk Leader instead.
At the time of publication restrictions were being revised, but for now, until we have confirmation of the changes …………..
Remember that social distancing applies throughout the walk, and bring face covering and hand sanitiser, just in case. If you are car-sharing or using public transport, follow the relevant rules and guidance.
