About Us

The Rossendale Group numbers around 100 members, and is regarded as one of the friendliest groups in the area.  We walk around 10 miles every Wednesday, every 2nd & 4th Sunday, and some Fridays in spring, summer, and autumn.  We also run 5-6 mile local walks on the 3rd Sunday of most months, for people who are not sure if they can manage 10 miles.  This is in addition to several walking weekends in the UK, and usually a full week away on the Continent.  We also organise a variety of social events, including a BBQ and Christmas meals.

Many of the walks exploit the beauty of the local scenery but often we go further afield to the Yorkshire Dales, The Peak District, The Lakes or the Welsh mountains. See our Walks Schedule for further details.
