Chorley Ramblers are your local group of the Ramblers. We ae a very varied, active and friendly walking group.
We have over 300 members and arrange over 120 walks per year, led by experienced leaders. Lengths of walks range from 3 miles to 10+ miles.
We especially welcome new ramblers. You do not initially need to belong to the Ramblers to try us out. You are welcomed to join us on up to 3 ‘taster walks’.
We are in the top 3 Ramblers groups and carry out vital footpath checking.
It has been medically proven that exercise is good for you and walking is one of the most painless , efficient, cost effective ways of keeping fitfor all ages. It tones muscles, is relaxing and increases energy and stamina.
It is a wonderful way of making new companions and friends that have similar interests, whilst exploring new areas of your local countryside.
The walks include the ppertunity to discuss local history, flora, fauna, geology, industrial heritage and ornithology. Learn from each other’s varied interests.
Please remember you will be very welcome to join the Chorley Ramblers
Chorley Ramblers offer a wide variety of walks within the beautiful West Pennine Moors and the outlying villages from Rivington in the East to Mawdesley in the West and from Hoghton in the North to Adlington in the South. We also venture further afield to the Lake District, Yorkshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire.
Heartfelt thanks and well wishes go with Brian and Kathleen. We're sad to see you go but do understand that health comes first. Brian has been involved with Chorley Ramblers since it's very beginning and between them, Kath and Brian have led and served on the Chorley Rambler's Committee for an amazing 41 years.
We'll still see Brian and Kath around as they will be co-ordinating the Footpath Checking for the Northern and Western parishes of Chorley and will join us on some of our shorter walks.
Sadly we must say goodbye to Barbara Williams who has died recently after a short illness. Barbara was a member of the Chorley Ramblers for over 23 years during which time she served in the committee as the development officer and secretary. In addition she was a footpath checker and a regular walk leader. Barbara was a loyal and passionate member and will be sorely missed.
