ENJOY a winter walk through some of Warrington's most beautiful landscapes.

The free walks take place throughout November and are encouraging people to experience some of the wildlife and wild spaces on offer in the borough.

They vary in length from 30 minutes to two hours.

LiveWire’s walks will all be ‘Carbon Landscape’ themed, run in partnership with the Lancashire Wildlife Trust’s Carbon Landscape initiative – a three-year project aiming to promote the environmentally important areas of East Warrington (as well as neighbouring Wigan and Salford) such as Risley Moss, Woolston Eyes and Paddington Meadows.

Walkers will get the chance to learn more about these important nature-rich havens found alongside suburban areas.

LiveWire hopes the walks will help raise the public’s awareness of these areas as places to spend leisure time and their historical importance and environmental value.

There’s also the chance to try ‘Nordic Walking’ on the walks. Nordic walking was originally a summer training regime for cross-country skiers.

Matt Fairhurst, LiveWire Advisor, said: “November’s Carbon Landscape walks are an opportunity to explore once industrial areas of Warrington that are now returning to a more nature-rich habitat, whilst getting some fresh air and witnessing the change of seasons.

“It’s easy to get involved – just turn up before the start of a walk. The groups are very friendly and it’s a great way to take the first steps to a healthier lifestyle, or get back into walking.”
