West Lancashire Walking Festival

Coronavirus Advice

Due to the current UK government coronavirus guidance, all of our events, including guided walks, are on hold. There will be no public events held or hosted on any of our sites until the situation/guidance changes. 

You can find some self guided trails and walks on this website and at the visit Sefton and West Lancashire website. 


The Walking Festival runs every August and provides walks to suit people of all abilities.

The festival offers everything from short, themed, informative strolls to long distance countryside rambles. A variety of different walk leaders and external organisations work alongside the Ranger's helping to provide walks that cover as much of West Lancashire's wonderful countryside as possible.

The walks

Details of individual walks during the Walking Festival will be available in our events pages.
