Discover Lancashire's heritage on a walking tour


Enjoy walks inspired by Pendle witches and renowned authors, heritage trails and industrial landmarks.

What better way to explore Lancashire's heritage and arts than with a walk, from short gentle rambles to long distance treks.

Walk in the footsteps of author J.R.R. Tolkien on the Tolkien Trail, which explores the richly beautiful surrounding that inspired him and a number of names which occur in 'The Lord of the Rings'.

Follow in the footsteps of the legendary Pendle witches on the Walking with Witches Trail, where beneath the hill lie pretty villages which tell a story of intrigue and witchcraft over 400 years old.  Or uncover Lancaster’s ancient stories hidden in its walls and buildings on the Lancaster Heritage Walking Trail.
