A walk with your camera

Walk Wheel Ride Colne Valley Hub, New Civic Hall Basement, Slaithwaite HD7 5AB

Setting off from the Walk Wheel Ride Hub in Slaithwaite, we will walk for two hours along the canal towpath keeping our eyes out for something wonderful to snap.

We walk at a gentle pace, with plenty of time to stop and take pictures of whatever catches your eye.

Run by photography enthusiasts, you might even pick up a few hints and tips along the way. And if you just want to join us for a bit of gentle exercise, a natter and a good chance of a coffee at the end, then please do – the more the merrier!
