Rhyddings Routes is a project funded by Big Lottery Awards For All and managed by the Civic Arts Centre on behalf of Friends of Rhyddings Park.
The idea behind the project is to get people walking around Oswaldtwistle a little more and exploring some of the great outdoor
areas that we are lucky enough to have. There are four walks in the series that vary in difficulty and access. Some walks are suitable for wheelchairs and buggies, others involve crossing fields and stiles.

Each route is circular so you can join at any point and return to the same place to finish. There are also activity sheets for young people which can be used in conjunction with the walks. Pick them up from various locations around around Oswaldtwistle including Civic Arts Centre


Thanks to Lucy Hamlin for devising the walks.
