Hyndburn: Stepping Out

About Us

Come and Walk with Us !

A  series of health walks ranging from push chair friendly to moderately strenuous covering the borough of Hyndburn in East Lancashire. All walks are led by trained  leaders and refreshments (and a good natter) are available at the end. All are easily reachable by public transport.

The Tuesday morning (Hyndburn Leisure Centre) and Thursday morning (Wellington, Clayton Le Moors) 30 minutes strolls  will appeal to people new to walking or of restricted mobility, or those who just wish  to take a slow stroll  chatting with friends.

The Monday morning (Rishton) and Thursday afternoon (Baxenden) walks are more stretching with some rough ground and the odd stile.

The Monday afternoon (CLM), Tuesday afternoon (Accrington), Thursday morning (Ossie) and Friday morning (Great Harwood) provide more challenging walking over varied terrain with some stiles and the odd steep slope.

Thre is a program of evening walks through the summer months and a twixmas walk towards the end of December.

See the calendar for further details.

The Stepping Out Project now has 8 walks a week in Hyndburn. These range from a ½ hour walk to a 90 minute walk.  All our walks are free, and are open to all ages and abilities.  We would ask all new walkers to start by walking with us on our shorter, slower paced walks unless they are extremely confident in their own fitness levels. For our led walk programme, please contact us.  

In June and July we run a number of evening walks.

All our walks are led by trained Volunteer Walk Leaders. Training involves a free one day course accredited by Walking for Health. Walk Leaders are involved with the leading, planning and risk assessing of our walks. It’s a great way to stay fit and healthy and explore Hyndburn. We are always looking for new volunteers, so if you are interested please contact us. 

For any more details, questions or queries please get in touch. Thanks
