Skelmersdale Rambling Club, in the heart of West Lancashire, organises monthly rambles by coach to the Lake District, North Wales, Yorkshire, Derbyshire areas, usually on the last Sunday of the month.
We have 4 walks at each venue in summer – Strenuous (10 – 13 miles, 1500 feet of climb), Moderate (8 – 9 miles, 1000 feet of climb), Leisurely (6 – 7 miles, 700 feet of climb, at a more leisurely pace), and Easy (4 – 5 miles, up to 300 feet of climb). In winter, there are only 3 walks.
Our coach leaves Burscough Junction Lane at 08:20, Ormskirk Bus Station Stand 6 at 08:40, Westhead Prince Albert at 08:45, Skelmersdale War Memorial at 08:50 and Skelmersdale Baths Car Park at 09:00. We return at 17:30 in the summer and 16:30 in the winter.
The coach fare for members is £12.00 and membership is £15.00 per year.
For each venue we have Coach Notes to set out the walks available which are given out on the coach, and are available on the website usually in the week before the walk.
A few “rules”
- On the coach, rucksacks must be placed in the boot, and boots, clean or dirty, must be taken off on the return journey.
- All ramblers on the coach are expected to join and stay with their chosen walking group.
- You are responsible for your own safety. You should not join a walk beyond your capability, always carry adequate and waterproof clothing and a first aid kit, and bring food and drink with you for the day.
- Sorry, but dogs are not allowed on the coach or on the walks.
Non-members are welcome to join us for a maximum of 2 walks when seats are available from 7 days before a walk at a fare of £15.00.
