Walk Description:

New Mills Boundary Walk 6 (Rowarth)

The New Mills Boundary is approximately 18 miles in circumference, the aim of these walks is to complete the Boundary over a series of walks.Taking in a mixture of Woods, Riverside, Country Roads and fine views of the surrounding areas too.

On this walk we drop down towards the Little Mill Inn and then head off towards Shiloh Road where we pass between farms which then climb up towards Cown Edge opening up great views across the valley as we drop back down to the start at Rowarth.

Approx 7km  Gear 1 (maybe 2) with 200m ascent overall, please allow 2hours for the walk


Below is where we are meeting to start our walk


Tips to help get the most out of your walk:

1  Suitable clothing and footwear - layers are best (No jeans)

2  Please use a small backpack to put spare layers in, backpacks with a chest strap and room to move your upper arms forward and backward are best. (No overshoulder bags)

3  Light refreshments (water, fruit juice, etc)

4 Mobile phone is useful for any last minute changes

5 Walk Leaders mobile number

6 Please contact me if you need to hire poles, £1 payable on the day of the walk 

Dogs - If you bring a dog it must be on a lead and under control at all times, I use a harness with mine and would be happy to offer advice on buying one, you must also be able to help your dog over stiles etc. where needed.

First Aid - You will need to bring your own basic First Aid Kit (Platers, Bite and Sting Cream, Suncream etc recommended)

The walk includes a short mobilisation of joints prior to walking and a cool down stretch at the end.

Whilst we do understand that sometimes it is not possible to make a class, please be aware that we do operate a no refund policy if you give us less than 24 hours’ notice. To see the full policy click HERE
