Decision of the EGM of The Longdendale & Glossopdale Footpaths Preservation Society.

At an EGM held on 12th January 2018, The Longdendale & Glossopdale Footpaths Preservation Society was formally wound up. The residual assets were donated to The Peak and Northern Footpath Society, and Glossop Mountain Rescue.

A group of ex-members continue to organise the longer Saturday walks as an informal group, and this web site will be used as a means of disseminating information about future walks.

See Programme page for details of future walks.
