Welcome to the North East Lancashire Coach Rambles
Latest Information from the Ramblers Central Office 17 September 2020
The UK advice on ‘safer travel’ currently advises against sharing private transport with those outside of your household or social bubble. Unfortunately this means that coach rambles are not be possible for some time.
Coach Rambles are classed as 'private transport' i.e. a private coach hire so Ramblers Central Office will not allow these to take place for 'quite some time'.
They regard them as the same as 'car sharing. The coaches with Moving People for the remainder of the year have been cancelled
We have not been charged any cancellation fees. We are now looking at 2021 and possibly March before they can be restarted
We will keep everyone updated on this website

A quick summary of what we are all about would be:
- Coach trip once a month where you can forget the driving and the parking.
- Destinations include The Lakes, Derbyshire, Yorkshire Dales or North Yorkshire Moors. There is an occasional trip to Wales together with some closer to home.
- Four led walks for all abilities
A grade: 12, sometimes 14 or more, miles with significant gradient
B grade: about 10 miles with moderate gradient
C grade: about 8 miles. Similar to the B with less climbing
D grade: 6 or 7 miles. There could be the odd hill but there will always be enough time to tackle them.
- Independant walkers are welcome and catered for.
- Two coaches with pick-up points through-out East Lancashire.
- Depending on the season, there will be between 6 and 8 hours at the destination . Most walks are timed to give an hour of exploration in the town / village before the coaches leave.
- Total cost is £15 for adults and £7:50 for children.
