West Lancashire Group-our walks

The Group walks programme normally has 3  walks each month around the year.

Each month we lead Wednesday and Sunday walks. During the coronavirus restrictions all our walks have been in West Lancashire, and 5 to 6 miles long taking about 3 hours. Normally at the start of each month we have a 7 or 8 mile weekend walk, often out of West Lancashire. Those joining our walks are expected to wear appropriate footwear and clothing. In winter, paths are often muddy so boots are highly recommended. Warm and waterproof clothing is essential.
