Longer monthly walks in West Lancs

The weekly Health Walks are up and running again for 2017, but if you fancy longer walks the Council’s Parks and Countryside Ranger Service organises regular countryside walks, including the popular Walking Festival, which runs throughout August.

There will be intermediate walks of about 5/6 miles on the first Monday of each month and a longer walk of between 8-12 miles on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

People taking part can explore beautiful countryside and discover the wonderful wildlife in West Lancashire. Walks coming up include:

  • Abbey Lakes Dean Wood Loop on 06/02/17: a five mile loop around Abbey Lakes and Dean Wood (meet at Abbey Lakes 9.50am for a 10am start).
  • Tarleton Circular Walk on 19/02/17: Enjoy some of our beautiful countryside in West Lancs with our Rangers on a 7mile walk through Tarleton.

For more information contact the rangers on 01695 622794.

Due to the advanced nature of these walks it is advised that you wear suitable sturdy footwear with ankle support and suitable clothing for the weather.
