WEEKLY THURSDAY WALKS from Horwich Leisure Centre

Every Thursday there is a brisk 4/5-mile circular walk. The walks start from the car park opposite the entrance to Horwich Leisure Centre and explore the countryside around Horwich.

On the third Thursday of the month our starting point varies but is within a 15 minute drive time from Horwich Leisure Centre. Details of the staring point for the third Thursday of the month walks are posted one week before on the website www.ramblers.org.uk/go-walking/ramblers-groups/bolton-group Click to View , they frequently start and finish at a cafe or pub. All walks start at 10.30am and finish around 12.30pm.

On the fourth Thursday of the month, we have an easier walk. Although, this is also at a brisk pace, we keep to the lower paths around Horwich, making it an ideal walk to try if you are joining us for the frist time.
