Central Lancs Rambling Club LogoCentral Lancashire Rambling Club
Central Lancashire Rambling Club is based in and around North/South Preston, Chorley and Leyland. The purpose of the club is to plan and organise transport for 4 graded walks every fortnight throughout the year, in pre-chosen areas of countryside. In the summer we travel as far as Wales, Derbyshire, Yorkshire and of course the Lake District. In the winter, when the days are shorter,we explore the great countryside closer to home. There are 4 grades of walk ranging from the energetic A walks down to the more sedate C walks, where the day usually starts with tea and toast. All the walk leaders aim to be back at the coach in time for some liquid refreshment before travelling home - whether it's tea and cake or a pint. They know they'll be in trouble if they don't!.
