Wednesday evening walks in the Ribble Valley


ROUTES from Chipping, Old Langho, Hurst Green and Sawley are just a few of the Wednesday evening walks coming up over the next few months.

These local walks, led by experienced leaders from Clitheroe Ramblers, offer the chance to enjoy our countryside, see wildlife and gain the benefits of fresh air and exercise, all in friendly company, and often with the chance to relax in a local pub at the end of the walk.

Starting in April, there is four to five-mile walk every Wednesday evening until the end of August. Times and start locations are publicised in the listings section in the Valley supplement to this paper, and also in posters around town and through the Clitheroe Ramblers website at

The full annual walk programme can be found on the website, or pick up a leaflet from Clitheroe library or the Tourist Information Office.

Non-members are welcome on the walks, which are via local paths, through fields, woods and moorland, though suitable footwear and an ability to cope with stiles are necessary. Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

“Just come and join us,” said Clitheroe Ramblers spokesman Penny Pitty. “We will be delighted to see you.”
