Whether you want to start a hobby, achieve a fitness goal, meet new people or give something back while enjoying the outdoors, there's plenty to see and do at Longshaw this January and February.

Nordic walking - for fun and social fitness, our monthly Nordic Walking events are perfect for beginners and experienced walkers alike. Later in the year we have Nordic Walking courses too, for those looking for a more structured introduction.

Running - our monthly Trust10 10k run is free, fun and must be one of the most spectacular routes in the Midlands! For those who are starting thier running journey there's the option to do one lap, or for those wanting to challenge themselves you can do both. We also have a Night Run on 3 February, with the option to do a family 2.5k course or more adventurous 7.5k route.

Meet like-minded people -  We run free guided walks every Wednesday and Sunday from the Tea Room, the perfect way to beat winter blues and meet new people. Simply drop in and discover more of Longshaw's history and how we look after the estate.

Give something back - We have regular volunteering roles and easy ways to get involved. Our monthly, family-friendly Muck-In Days take place on the second Sunday of every month - why not drop in and give it a try? For information on a longer-term or more regular role, contact peakdistrict@nationaltrust.org.uk.

Spend time together - From delicious cakes in the tea room to family walks to learning more about nature together, why not use Longshaw as a backdrop for spending time with your family and friends this year?
