The Royal Geographical Society have recently launched their new Discovering Britain project, which hopes to encourage people to explore Britain and discover the country's amazing landscape whilst learning more about nature, our history and vibrant culture.
|Entrance to Standedge Tunnel, Diggle|
The walk is self-guided with a detailed commentary available in both audio format and written format. Both can be downloaded for free from the Discovering Britain website: http://www.discoveringbritain.
Full colour versions of the walk booklet, ideal for taking out on the walk, are also on sale locally in the Tourist Information Centre at Saddleworth Museum, in the Gallery Oldham shop at Oldham Library, and at Delph Post Office.
Part of the route shares the same course as one of the walks detailed in my new walking guidebook, which will be published soon. To promote this new RGO walk I will be holding a guided walk along the route sometime in May.
