The lovely little books above were written by Jack Hanmer in the 1980s, as can be seen by the advertisements inside. Jack was a keen local historian, he wrote a book on Glossop’s past and as an energetic walker, published books on his favourite rambles all over the High Peak and Marple. Jack sadly passed away in 2020 aged 97, he had a long and distinguished career as a teacher and taught at several local schools. He also served in the Fleet Air Arm and was a pilot and navigator. Please bear in mind that these books are over thirty years old and some of the details decsribed may have changed.

Hope you get out and enjoy Jack's favourite walks.
