West Lancashire Ramblers-more about our Group


We take a keen interest in the state of the rights of way in West Lancashire. Whenever we find or are told about a path problem we report this to the local authority responsible for rights of way-Lancashire County Council. When the local authority tells us about applications for planning permission we check to see if rights of way are affected.
