LANX WALKING CLUB

LANX WALKING CLUB


At LANX we pride ourselves on being adventurous. We seek out adventure in everything we do and create. Whether it be setting up an event, walking up a hill, a trip down to the pub, or making progress in the workplace; an “adventure” is what you make of it and it is there for the taking.

“Walking uphill” is something that has been ingrained into the culture of LANX and we want to celebrate that by opening up our adventures to our community, friends and family  which will offer us opportunities to share, grow and develop. To promote positive mental health and adventure we want to offer you guys the chance to get out and about with your favourite local footwear brand, LANX. 

Crossing fields, scrambling ridges, climbing fells and tapping triggs. We will be exploring far and wide to celebrate the beauty of our country and favourite walking routes. Join the LANX Walking Club.

 

OUR MAIN WALKS

#1 - 06/07 LANX to PENDLE LOOP

Distance: 12.4 miles / 19 km

Elevation: 1,596 ft / 480 m 

Bowland Bog Factor: 1-2/4

Difficulty: Moderate 

A long but worthwhile undertaking from Lanx HQ to the Nick of Pendle with an optional extension onto Pendle proper.  From Lanx turn right onto the main road and follow this for half a mile before turning right through a small wood and follow the old route of a Roman Road across the railway and past Clitheroe Golf Club.  A hop and a skip takes you across the A59 and into Pendleton (optional pint and bowl of chips at the Swan with Two Necks...) A footpath bears right out of Pendleton and through farmland towards the Nick of Pendle.  An optional loop here can take walkers to the seldom visited Deerstones and down to Churn Clough reservoir.  

From the Nick, a long and gentle descent takes you back though Whalley golf club and Spring Wood before the final drop back into Whalley and through the village back to Lanx HQ.

 

#2 - 10/08 FULL BOWLAND

Distance: 10.5 miles / 17 km

Elevation: 2,100 ft / 640 m

Bowland Bog Factor: 3/4

Difficulty: Difficult

A tough route taking in the best of what the Forest of Bowland has to offer. Park at Langden Brook and head north up the Trough of Bowland. A trail on the right winds up Whin Fell before a challenging and exposed descent down Ouster Rake to Brennand Farm. The route then winds its way around Whitendale before bearing right up steep switchbacks into the classic bogginess of the Bowland Fells. At Dunsop Head, follow the fence line along to the trig point and past the site of a WWII Aircraft wreckage before heading back down into the Hodder Valley and back to the car before a well deserved drink at the Inn at Whitewell.

#4 - 12/10 CLITHEROE // PENDLE LOOP

MADWalkers in Lancashire. Collaborative event with youth charity to offer an opportunity to bring the city community to Clitheroe. Hosted by LANX.

Distance: 11.7 Miles / 18.8 km

Elevation: 1900 ft / 580 m

Bowland Bog Factor: 2/4

Difficulty: Moderate

Take a stroll through the historic market town of Clitheroe before striking out through Mearley Hall to the open moorland and sweeping vistas of the iconic Pendle Hill. A short but sharp climb alongside Ashendean Clough brings you to the open expanse of the Pendle massif with a gentle (but, in classic Bowland fashion, boggy) climb to Big End. On a clear day, Pendle's prominence gives way to views to the Yorkshire Three Peaks, and if you are lucky, the Lake District. Down to Downham with an optional stop at the Assheton Arms for a pint of ..... The route then takes you along the valley floor around Worsaw Hill and into Worston, before arriving back in Clitheroe.

We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events, come rain or shine!
