New members on either our walks or socials are always welcome. Just pick an event and turn up!

There is no need to contact the event leader but their contact details are always provided if there is any information that you would like to know.

For regular walkers we ask that you join the Ramblers and affiliate yourself to our group (ML 50 Hike on Lancashire). Our group costs (such as this website and insurance) are funded through your subscriptions. For those of you who have not yet joined we ask for a donation of £2 per walk. This goes to the Ramblers (a registered charity).

Membership benefits

Membership costs just £35 per year (or £20.00 concessionary rate). Joint membership is available at £44 (£26.50 concessionary) for two adults living at the same address.

You also get:

  • Quarterly award-winning walk magazine (RRP £3.60 per issue)
  • Free Walk Britain: Great Views walks guide (RRP £14.99)
  • Fantastic one-off 20% voucher for Cotswold Outdoor with your new member pack, plus
  • An ongoing 15% discretionary discount at most outdoor shops
  • Your membership fee helps the Ramblers protect footpaths and walking spaces for everyone to enjoy

All our walk leaders are insured due to our membership of the Ramblers association. Many other local casual walking groups do not have insurance.

How to join

You need to join the Ramblers. In the second page of the form, under the heading "Your Group", choose the Mid Lancashire area then Hike on Lancashire.
