Wigan Ramblers organise walks 12 months a year, these include family footpath walks, 4, 8 and 12 miles coach rambles and longer rambles.

Our local footpath walks are easy rambles in and around Wigan of 3½ - 4½ miles. They start at 14:00 and finish around 16:15 to 16:30 or a little earlier in winter. These are free of charge.  The local footpath walks are an ideal way to introduce new members and to discover miles of footpaths around Wigan, which you might never have walked before.

Our coach rambles are usually split into two groups, one group walking for 4 - 5 miles and the other group walking 8 miles.  The coach rambles cost £10 for members and £13 for non-members.


Over the years our Group has enjoyed many varied coach rambles, local footpath walks and away weekends.  In order to continue this successful venture our Committee would appreciate more active support to keep the Group going.


There have been comments that our walks have become a bit repetitive.  It would be nice if a few people, not all necessarily Committee members, would be prepared to meet on a six-monthly basis to suggest, and/or volunteer to lead, coach ramble and local footpath walks and to assist with the formulation of the programme of walks.  If you feel nervous about leading a walk, help and support is available.
