Walks Schedule 2017 / early 2018

Before walking with us, please click here for information about walk grading and safety.

Wednesday walks start at 9.00 am from the upper car park at Whitaker Park (opposite Ski Rossendale) unless otherwise stated.

2nd & 4th Sunday walks start at 9.00 am from Kay Street car park in Rawtenstall unless otherwise stated.  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 5-6 miles, which start at various locations – see the ‘Latest News’ 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.  These walks start at various locations – see the ‘Latest News’ page of our website a week or two 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’ 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 – with putting this schedule together so far in advance, most of the walks are classed as 10 miles, Moderate grade, with the exception of the 3rd Sunday shorter walks.   The details will be refined nearer the time, and any changes will appear on the website in BLOCK CAPITALS.

Regardless of any such detailed changes, 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.
