Health walks

COVID 19 Information:

All our Community led  Health Walks are currently cancelled. We will update you as the situation changes. Stay Safe!



Let your feet hit the street with our local health walks!

As part of our  Active West Lancs scheme, our GP Referral Officers and Rangers used to lead weekly 'health walks' in Banks, Burscough, Skelmersdale and Ormskirk. The walks were suitable for beginners and those returning to exercise. 

Now that the funding for Active West Lancs has ceased, our staff no longer lead the walks. However, our regular walkers form these groups still meet up and take part in a local, community lead walk each week.

If you would like to find our more and maybe join one of these walks, please contact Jenny Deacon on 01695 583340

In addition, our Rangers lead some longer walks across West Lancs. These walks are between 4 and 12 miles in length. No booking is required. For information  and details on venues and meeting points, please see our events pages.
