The Northern Area is where the very first Manchester Terrier Mooch took place on Formby Beach, L37 1LJ.

Since then we have had many more successful Mooches on this beach with varied numbers of Manchesters in attendance; the record is 39. After the Mooch we convene in the car park for refreshments and a chat before we take our exhausted pooches home.

Mooches in new locations have also been added and, where possible, we have included a Cafe break, Pub lunch or Picnic.

As with all our mooches, they are designed as a social gathering and for those that want to know more about the breed. Other dog breeds are welcome on the walks.

Anyone with a Manchester Terrier who lives in the Northern Area can plan a mooch and advertise it on this page and in Facebook. The group is open to suggestions about other walks and locations.

Check out the posts in Mooch News – Northern below for more information about forthcoming walks and for reports and photos from our past mooches.  Forthcoming walks and updates can also be found on Facebook:
