Easy – AMBLERS – Usually between 2-4 miles, fairly flat, with good paths. There may be stiles.
Moderate – RAMBLERS – Between 4-6 miles, with the possibility of some rougher walking and up-hill stretches (but we won’t be rushing)
Challenging – SCRAMBLERS – Over 8 miles with the likelihood of steep, rougher sections
- Walking boots or stout shoes are required for all walks
- No dogs are allowed
- You may sign up for any walk at the monthly meeting. Lists will be available at the walking group table.

Next Rambler Walk
After we had walked around Beacon Fell the consensus was that we could exert ourselves a bit more. Yesterday Sheila and I walked up to Rivington Pike. It took us nearly an hour to get to the Pike itself, the views are wonderful. we then descended to the Pigeon Loft, down through the terraced gardens and then headed north to eventually arrive at Rivington Hall Barn, before walking back to the other Barn. About 2 hours in all, plenty of aerobic exercise but not too much we feel.
Once again I suggest we meet in Tesco’s car park by the Clic and Collect (near Leyland Cross) at 10.00 AM to save taking too many cars.

Please check each Category Pages for meeting points. According to our guide book a charge of 10p per mile should be given to the driver.This will save embarrassment if a driver finds himself being a chauffeur to every event. Meeting on the Tesco Car Park, (far corner near the Leisure Centre)
