Stockport Walking & Outdoor Group



Welcome to Stockport Walking and Outdoor Group
(affectionately known as SWOG)

  • Stockport Walking & Outdoor Group is a multi-activity group with individual members of all ages. 

  • We meet for walks, talks, pub evenings, weekends away and more.

  • New faces are always welcome at any of our events listed on the sidebar of this website

  • SWOG is affiliated to the YHA (England and Wales) Ltd, so SWOG members currently enjoy discounted membership of the YHA (England & Wales). For details, contact the membership secretary.

  • The Membership section gives details of how to join the group.

  • Reports of our walks and other activities, with photographs, can be found on SWOG BLOG








Everyone taking part in Group activities does so at their own risk.
        • The Group will not be held responsible for any accident, injury or loss occurring as a result of any Group event or in connection with travel to such event, however caused. 
        • Members attending are reminded that outdoor activities frequently need specialist equipment (boots, waterproofs, etc) and the group does not provide these. 
        • Should you attend an event and in the opinion of the leader, be ill-equipped for the terrain and weather conditions then you will be politely turned away. 
        • Please contact the leader in advance if you are unsure what will be appropriate for the event. 
        • Accompanied children under 18 are welcome but please check with the walk leader beforehand to ensure that the terrain and distance are suitable.
