West Lancashire Walking Festival - 6th August

This year's Walking Festival runs from 29 July to 28 August and provides walks to suit people of all abilities.

There are short, themed, informative walks as well as long distance countryside rambles. A variety of different walk leaders and external organisations work alongside our rangers to deliver the festival, with the aim of providing walks that cover as much of West Lancashire's wonderful countryside as possible.
