A range of led walks will be available, you don’t need much equipment, and you will receive support and encouragement from other walkers. Walking boots and suitable clothing for an outdoor activity and the weather conditions and a personal day pack with a packed lunch and water or a hot drink.

Barbara Sharples, coach secretary, said: “The North East Lancs Coach Rambles (Coach Rambles) offer a selection of four walks between five and 15 miles led by experienced walk leaders who are all members of the Ramblers Association.

"The shorter walks are on easier terrain, with gentle climbs and only a few stiles whilst the longer walks are for more experienced people who like a good steep climb or two, don’t mind the ground being muddy and rough under foot and like to walk at a fast pace. We offer two moderate walks in between."
