We are part of the Ramblers, a nationwide charity whose aims are to promote walking for health, pleasure and an appreciation of our wonderful countryside.
New members are always welcome!
Wigan & District Ramblers organise walks 12 months a year. These include family footpath walks, 4, 8 and 12-mile coach rambles, and longer rambles. Click here to see our forthcoming programme of walks.
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 £11 for members and £14 for non-members.

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