Walks in Lancashire

Possibly more famous for it’s cities, football & industrial past – but Lancashire has some astoundingly beautiful places.

We also, with all of our walks, aim to prove that you can find wonder anywhere – so some walks will start in towns – others will be out in the countryside – but they’ll all offer you somewhere to get away from your worries, to have a chance to meet people, talk & really be heard.

The Walks

You can scroll through all of our walks – or if there’s something you’re particularly interested in – our Walk & Talk sessions, or maybe developing your personal skills – then you can search below…

A 5 mile walk, covering moorland, woodland and reservoirs. We will walk from The Institute towards Chapletown with its historic buildings, before crossing the railway line onto the moors. A short climb finds us joining the Witton Weavers Way - with great views of the surrounding areas. Dropping down to the south end of Entwistle res, we then follow paths around Wayoh Reservoir returning to The Institute and brews and cakes for those who wish. Hopefully with weather will be kind - but come prepared for changeable weather!
