Welcome to East Lancs LDWA
The East Lancashire group is one of about 40 groups around the country affiliated to the Long Distance Walkers Association. We are a friendly bunch who enjoy the social side of the club as well as the walking. The group secretary's contact details are firstname.lastname@example.org Please contact the group secretary for general enquiries about the group. The group secretary does keep all East Lancs members informed of group news and activities via the LDWA bulk e-mail system. Please update your details on the main LDWA site to ensure you receive these.

Why not look at our walks programme, see Future Events Our main social walks are at the weekend, normally a Sunday, and these average twenty miles in length. This would take about eight hours to complete and all walkers need to carry enough food and drink to last the day. We like to visit different areas eg the West Pennine Moors, Lune Valley, Yorkshire Dales etc.
In 2017 East Lancs is walking the Wyre Way in four circular stages. Each walk will feature part of the Wyre Way and you will have walked the entire length if you complete all four stages. These walks are approx 16 to 18 miles long and will be held on a Saturday. This gives those who work during the week a chance to build up to longer mileage and walk a recognised LDP. The dates are 24th June, 29th July, 26th August and 9th September.
The group also offers Wednesday walks which are shorter in length, from about 12 to 16 miles. Some of these are also Long Distance Paths which are broken down over several dates. Each part of the walk is a good day in itself, do not be put off if you cannot complete the whole path.
We also offer some "Plodder" walks on various days. These are slightly shorter and at a more moderate pace. These walks are not advertised in Strider but the details of them will be advertised on the Future Events section.
The contact for the Plodder walks is Don Watson and he can be contacted on email@example.com
