The 2020 programme of Discover Hyndburn Walks will start on Tuesday, 10th March. See the What’s On section of the website for more information on each individual monthly walk.
The Discover Hyndburn walks will be ‘Ambles not a Rambles’ around places of interest taken at a leisurely pace to discover Hyndburn and they may also include a relevant nature theme. Walks will be mainly on tracks and paths and linked to green spaces, local nature reserves and places where PROSPECTS carry out woodland maintenance and host volunteer events. Walkers will be given information about PROSPECTS, the various projects managed by PROSPECTS staff and the volunteering activities available.
The walks will be suitable for all including those who cannot walk very far or too fast and more active walkers who generally walk further and faster but want to join more relaxing walks where there is time to enjoy trees, flowers, birds, panoramas and to take photographs of the countryside around them. The walks may include unsurfaced rural paths and occasional stiles.
The walks will be led by a qualified walk leader from PROSPECTS or a partner organisation. There will be time to take in points of interest, stop and rest points, time to have a chat and socialise whilst also getting some gentle exercise.
