About our WALKING GROUP

KAY STREET COUNTRY STRIDERS is a small group of walkers based in Rawtenstall, in Rossendale, Lancashire. The group originated over forty years ago by the late Mr Alan Hitch as one of Kay Street Baptist Church’s activities. We enjoy a countryside walk of 4 to 8 miles each month,  on Saturdays, leaving Kay Street car park  at 10 am prompt, so be earlier in arriving. We carshare to a starting point and a small donation is given to the driver to help with petrol and parking costs, otherwise the walks are free. All walkers are responsible for their own safety and the safety of fellow walkers. Any children must be accompanied by an adult. Please ensure you are dressed suitably for the likely weather, wear strong waterproof footwear and carry a packed lunch. Dogs are NOT usually permitted as we may be passing through young livestock, but check the individual walk.
