Now that we are in the sixth week of Lockdown many of us a missing our regular organised walks, especially during this glorious spring weather. However, a number of us are still managing to escape onto the moors and into the woods and we felt that if we shared our photographs, of these walks, it may bring pleasure to those who are confined to their homes. If you have any photographs you would like to share please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will include them onto our website.

Check out KAY STREET COUNTRY STRIDERS.
This is a small group of walkers based in Rawtenstall, in Rossendale, Lancashire. We enjoy a countryside walk of 4 to 8 miles, on the second Saturday of each month, leaving Kay Street car park at 10 am prompt. We carshare to a starting point and a small donation is given to the driver to help with petrol and parking costs, otherwise the walks are free. All walkers are responsible for their own safety and the safety of fellow walkers. Any children must be accompanied by an adult. Please ensure you are dressed suitably for the likely weather, wear strong waterproof footwear and carry a packed lunch. Dogs are NOT permitted as we are usually passing young livestock.
Click Kay Street Country Striders. for information about the next walk.
