Health walks

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

Our GP Referral Officers and Rangers lead weekly 'health walks' in Banks, Burscough, Skelmersdale and Ormskirk. The walks are suitable for beginners and those returning to exercise. No need to book, just turn up and enjoy the fresh air and exercise...and a well earned ‘cuppa’ at the end.

In addition, twice a month, 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.
