What we do

Preston Group Walks 

We normally arrange walks on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday and the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month.
Walks are around 6-9 miles in length. There are walks covering different levels of ability using the standard Ramblers classifications. The main walking area is the general area of Preston and surrounding countryside. However, walks may also cover the wider Lancashire and even West Yorkshire areas. 

We welcome non-members who want to come along and try going for a walk before joining the Ramblers. Please make sure you have suitable weatherproof clothing and footwear to cover the walk terrain and weather on the day. You may also need a packed lunch and water. 

We also welcome members of other Ramblers groups on our walks and many of our members do join other group’s walks.
