Community Rail Lancashire in partnership with the Lancashire Rail Ramblers, Friends of Dales Rail and the Friends of the Settle Carlisle Line arrange a number of guided walks through out the year. These start and end at stations on community rail lines including the Settle to Carlisle line.
Please note that due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and advice from the government it has been decided to suspend all community rail guided walks for the foreseeable future.
Any prospective walkers should make themselves familiar with the Countryside Code which can be downloaded by clicking HERE. The Countryside Code gives common sense advice to help everybody respect, protect and enjoy the countryside. It is also there to support local communities who live and work in the countryside.
Five simple messages summarise the Code:
1. Be safe – plan ahead and follow any signs
2. Leave gates and property as you find them
3. Protect plants and animals and take your litter home
4. Keeps dogs under close control
5. Consider other people
The Code applies to all parts of the countryside in England.
