Friday 23 March ~ Bacup to Rawtenstall

On Friday 23 March Derek (0747 5300 007) will lead the first linear walk of the season. It will be a moderate walk of around 10.5 miles with about 350 metres of ascent from Bacup back to Rawtenstall. Meet at the LOWER carpark in Whitaker Park at 9:20 [SD 80534 22590 or N53:41:58 (53.699379) & W2:17:47 (-2.296315) or BB4 6RG will get you in the area ~ red pin on map below]. We will catch the 9:30 bus (464) from Haslingden Road to St James Gardens, Bacup ~ journey time 24 minutes. If more convenient, then feel free to park where you like and catch the bus en-route!

If in doubt ~ ask!

No dogs are allowed on the majority of our walks. This is for the safety & wellbeing of all concerned.

Please Note: We very much welcome new walkers with us, but would ask you to contact the walk leader beforehand, either to discuss the demands of the walk and what you need to bring, or simply to let the leader know that you will be joining us. If you are at all unsure of your capabilities, then ~ for everyone’s safety ~ we suggest you try one of our shorter walks, which take place on the third Sunday of most months and – from May to August – on the first and third Thursday evenings. See Walks Schedule for details.
