Main Details

Walking is the most environmentally and socially sustainable form of transport. Walking is a great form of exercise for improving health and fitness and is an inexpensive leisure activity.  You can start walking anytime, anywhere, walk to your local shops, to school, to work or to the bus stop.  

Lancashire County Council recognises the importance of walking as a form of transport as well as acknowledging it as a means of tackling a variety of other issues including environmental, leisure, tourism, social and health issues.   Walking stimulates both personal health and the health of communities and local economies. It can be reliable, fast and effective for short distances and is equally attractive as a slow and pleasurable long distance activity.
