More Info

We are a friendly and unpretentious walking club based on the Fylde Coast in Lancashire. We have walks planned for almost every weekend. Transfer to the destinations is mainly by coach, with collection points in St.Annes on Sea, Blackpool, Cleveleys, Thornton Cleveleys and Poulton le Fylde. Popular destinations can be the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Derbyshire’s Peak District, North Wales (Snowdonia) and Lancashire. Have a look here to see our future destinations. All walks have experienced leaders and are graded to suit different levels of fitness. Are you interested in friendship through walking? Do you want to get fit? Then take a look at what we do, and how you can join us.

Health Matters

Walking is the most natural form of movement, and an excellent all-

round mode of exercise. Yet as a nation we are walking less and less.

Walking can help you to:

    * Improve your general health     * Get fit and stay fit     * Control your weight     * Live longer! Health experts agree that 30 minutes brisk walking on most days of the week is sufficient to improve fitness. However like a lot of things in life that we are supposed to do, daily exercise can become a chore. A much more enjoyable way is to join us every weekend and walk in the beautiful countryside, with good company. All you need is some sensible clothing/footwear and the price of the coach fare. This gradual start to walking can help people who feel they are not active enough to change their day to day habits through the simple activity of walking more. Hope to see you on the walks.
What to Wear text box a brilliant walking club

What to Wear

What do I need for a walk? A pair of walking boots (essential ), a rucksack, a waterproof jacket (to protect you from the wind and rain), a fleece jacket, outdoor trousers, a hat and gloves, a change of clothing, something to drink, something to eat etc. Water is important to carry with you to keep you hydrated. A walking pole is useful, and a whistle and plastic survival bag should be carried for emergencies. Also a pair of gaiters, overtrousers, spare clothing, are optional but often desirable when walking in higher altitudes. A small personal first aid kit is also recommended, plasters, gauze, antiseptic ointment and the like. Blisters can sometimes occur when walking in boots that you have worn without problems for years. Do not wear denim trousers (jeans). They give no warmth when wet, they weigh a ton and cling to your legs, sapping your energy and making it very tiring to walk. Best to use trousers made from a technical material. These repel the wind and light rain. When wet they dry out very quickly and are tailored in such a way to allow easy movement whilst out on the hills. Do not wear cotton clothing next to your skin, (T-shirts etc.) for the same reason, wear a man- made nylon/polyester type vest or top. These act as a thermal layer, separating your skin from the cold wetness of rain or sweat which will draw away your body heat rapidly, making you feel chilled and unhappy. What about safety considerations? Your leader will be an ordinary club member who is unpaid, however all leaders will be competent navigators and in many cases, will have been leading parties for a number of years. While the leader has undertaken to lead his/her party for the day, you should be aware that you are ultimately responsible for your own safety and should follow their advice. Please do not go ahead of the leader or depart from the party without speaking to the leader first. There are few rules, but these have developed over time for the general safety and comfort of club members. Smoking is not permitted on the coach. Alcoholic drinks are not allowed to be consumed on the walks or on the coach. You will usually have time at the end of the walk for a sociable drink in a pub or tearoom/cafe before going home. We also regret that dogs cannot be allowed on club walks since this may cause problems with landowners and livestock farmers. The club has an excellent safety record because of its level of organisation and the broad range of experience that has been built up over many years of operation. There is no other club in the West of Lancashire that offers such a wide and varied programme of such frequency throughout the year. Notes: All sporting and leisure activities have inherent hazards associated with them and rambling is no exception. In spite of the safety of members always being of the paramount concern, accidents will occasionally occur. It is important therefore, that when entering into the activity, each member appreciates that they have a responsibility to identify and take all reasonable precautions to eliminate or minimise the potential for an accident to arise.
Food and drinks should be taken, strong walking boots are essential. Take warm clothes and waterproofs. The fell tops can be much colder than the valleys. A change of clothes can be left on the coach.
