Walking in Wyre


All council run events (indoor and outdoor) are cancelled until further notice.

Spending time outdoors safely: 

The government has issued new guidance for people using outdoor spaces

Being able to get outside more is great for our wellbeing but your safety is our priority. Please use open spaces responsibly.

You can now spend more time outdoors to:

- Rest or have a picnic
- Exercise as much as you like and play outdoor sports as long as this is on your own, with people you live with or just you and one other person
- If you are alone you can meet up with one other person, but you must stay 2 meters apart

You must:

- Stay 2 meters away from anyone you don’t live with
- Avoid busy areas. If you arrive and it’s too busy please choose another place to visit
- Keep your dogs on a lead so that you can safely stay away from other people
- If you are out in the countryside, stick to paths and close gates behind you
- Take your litter home
- Always pick up after your dog
- Wash your hands as soon as you get home

We understand that you are keen to visit your favourite places, but please think twice before visiting popular spots, if they become too busy social distancing becomes extremely difficult and puts everyone in danger. Think green and stay local before driving to a beauty spot in Wyre or elsewhere.

Coronavirus has not gone away. Your actions matter. Please continue to follow government guidance to keep yourself, your loved ones and others safe.

The Lancashire region of Wyre has a huge variety of walking opportunities, from coastal dunes to wild upland moors, riverside trails to quiet country villages.

Wyre Council promotes a range of routes throughout the district which can be accessed via the guided walk schemes, or as self guided trails; some of which are accessible to tramper vehicle users.

Information about walking in Wyre, plus details of a huge range of other activities available in Wyre, can also be found at the Visit Garstang Centre
