Walking Tips!

If you have never walked before we consider the following items are essential:

  • A pair of walking boots
  • Warm layers of clothing and waterproof jacket and over trousers
  • A rucksack for your food, hot drink and additional clothing in case the weather changes
  • Passengers should have a pair of casual shoes to change into at the end of the walk and a plastic bag to put your boots in.
  • Denim jeans are not recommended due to their poor thermal qualities and long drying time when wet.

Fell walking can be strenuous and if you haven't exercised recently you should consider your general fitness and health before selecting the grade of walk and if necessary, discuss it with your Doctor.

Important Information

Car Share Scheme  -

We operate a car share scheme so if you have no transport or you prefer to be a passenger you can leave your car at the meeting point.
Passengers donate to the car driver 20p per mile calculated on the distance from Corporation Park to the start of the walk.


Dogs -

The association has agreed that no dogs will be allowed on the walks.

Insurance -  

Blackburn Rambling Association has third party indemnity insurance, but members  are responsible for their own personal accident insurance.

Annual Subscriptions -

Subscriptions are due following the AGM held in March of each year at which the subscriptions shall be set.  The current annual subs are £10.00.

Members  must be 16 years and over.  

Persons under 16 years do not pay subs and can walk, but must be accompanied by a responsible person.
