We meet on the first Friday of each month at 11am to walk about 4-7 miles, for 2-4 hours within 30 minutes’ drive of Burnley.

We also now meet on the third Friday of the month for people who prefer easier, shorter and less strenuous walks.

As we only really decide from month-to-month where we will go next, details are published in the monthly newsletter, the Events Page of this site and they are also shown below. This usually allows a full week’s notice to everyone of our plans.

Relax, take it easy, you’ll all be welcome.
