Wednesday walks start at 9.00 am from the upper car park at Whitaker Park (opposite Ski Rossendale) unless otherwise stated, and are usually between 9-11 miles.

Thursday evening walks (May to Aug) are local shorter walks taking around 2 hours, starting at various locations (usually a pub) – see the ‘Latest News/Upcoming Walks’ page of our website a week or so before the date of the walk for details.

Friday linear walks involve public transport, so bring your bus pass if you have one.  They are usually between 9-11 miles.  These walks start at various locations – see the ‘Latest News/Upcoming Walks’ page of our website a week or two before the date of the walk for details.

2nd & 4th Sunday walks start at 9.00 am from Kay Street car park in Rawtenstall unless otherwise stated, and are usually between 9-11 miles..  Please note that we do not walk on every Sunday, so do check the schedule before turning up at Kay Street!!

3rd Sunday walks (Feb to Oct) are local shorter walks of around 6 miles, which start at various locations – see the ‘Latest News/Upcoming Walks’ page of our website a week or so before the date of the walk for details.

Walk leaders’ contact details are given when the final information about a walk is published in the ‘Latest News/Upcoming Walks’ page of our website.  If you are in any doubt about your ability to undertake a walk, or if you simply want further details, then please contact the designated leader in good time beforehand.

Please note that the distances quoted are approximations, so the actual distance may vary up or down by 10-15%, depending on route and conditions.

Useful shortcut As the year goes on, scrolling down to forthcoming walks takes longer and longer.  To go directly to walks in a particular month, simply type the first few letters of the month in the search box on the right below.  This can also be used to see if there are any walks in a particular area, eg Grassington.
