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…

Jumbles Reservoir from Turton Tower

16 Apr 24 - 10:00
4.5 miles around Turton Tower, and Jumbles reservoir. Some road work, but mainly on farm/field tracks, and good paths around Jumbles reservoir. From Turton Tower we will head over the railway line, before taking field tracks along the Witton Weavers Way and dropping down to recross the railway line (care needed) and head into Chapletown. We then cross Wayoh Reservoir on the embankment and head towards Jumbles reservoir - a short road stretch is necessary . Entering the woods, we enjoy flat paths- where we may see a variety of wildlife. Some mud to be expected.
