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 £1 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.
