Guided Walks Programme
Covid-secure group walks are back this Autumn! Join us as we explore the fascinating part of Lancashire where majestic rivers flow beneath the Pennine hills.
This October and November we celebrate the rich social and radical history of Pendle, the Forest of Bowland and the Ribble Valley. If you have missed the physical, mental and social benefits of group walks this year, why not join us on our weekend walks (usually Saturday mornings) for moderate paced walks, most of which are between 5 – 7 miles in length.
The guided walks will be led by Nick Burton who will take you on a journey through the history, heritage and hidden landscapes of this beautiful part of Lancashire and, of course, the old West Riding of Yorkshire.
Covid Secure: Numbers will be limited on each walk so it is important to book a place. Hand sanitiser will be available at each walking event and all gates along the route will be opened and closed by the walk leader.
