BAGGING THE LANCASHIRE HILLS

Ticking off the hills across Lancashire over 100m


2020 brought along a whole lot of new challenges for the world. Plans we had got cancelled, adventures got cancelled and holidays got cancelled, I am pretty sure nobody could of ever predicted the effects covid would have on everybody.

Now we home educate full time, and part of their education is learning about the outdoors and we set ourselves challenges, which one of them has been to walk all the Wainwrights, yes all 214 of them.

Now in 2020 we only managed to add a handful due to the restrictions from March so we are currently on 103 wainwrights and have been since October 2020.

So we decided to try and climb all our local Lancashire summits, BUT could we find a list?

We found lists that included the historic summits, or some lists that didn't include ones we had already climbed in Lancashire, SO we decided to compose our own list as we go along


Please feel free to download the map and tick off as you go along, please also email us if we have missed any off. The list is for those 100m and higher.

WHY DO WE DO CHALLENGES

Studies have provided evidence supporting the positive effects of getting outside throughout the year in. A number of studies also support the physical health benefits of spending time outdoors, as well as mental health benefits of enjoying nature, such as a reduction in stress and a restored mental energy.

It also supports the children's education and future.

  • Helps them grow as individuals. By competing the challenge, you are able to discover more about yourself and what you can achieve.

  • We all gain awareness, knowledge and skills.

  • Learn more about the areas we are walking

  • We become healthier both mentally and physically

  • We gain inspiration and new experiences both individually and as a family

  • We have found the kids are happier, get along with each other better being outdoors more.

  • We get to explore our country and meet like minded people whilst gaining confidence along the way.

  • We feel it will open up many more opportunities as they grow
