Stockport Walking & Outdoor Group



About SWOG
Stockport Walking & Outdoor Group (SWOG) was a 2007 renaming of the
 Stockport YHA group. The group celebrated a 60th anniversary in 2015, but has existed since 1935 in various forms.

Our main activities include Sunday walks, which vary between 8 and 14 miles. We have Thursday walks once a month, usually of shorter duration & distance. We also organise about ten weekends away to various parts of the UK during the year.This is sometimes supplemented by longer breaks, both in the UK & abroad.

On Wednesday evenings during the summer we have a programme of 3-4 mile walks. In the winter period this becomes a club night in Hazel Grove Civic Hall, where we host illustrated talks on a number of subjects by guest speakers and members. We occasionally hold a quiz or other social event. 

On Fridays we have a pub night in various local hostelries in the area. 

Occasionally we organise meals out, theatre visits , the occasional cycle ride & other social activities.
