Meet new people, make new friends and enjoy the local area. We provide healthy walking activities to help you stay fit and healthy in later life.
If you've often thought about going for a walk but had no one to go with, then this could be for you! There'll always be someone at the starting point to greet you and lead the walk, and there is no need to book, just turn up! The lengths of the walks range from about 3½ miles to 8 miles; the distance of each is clearly indicated on the programme. If you are in any doubt about your fitness, we strongly suggest that you try a shorter walk first. Don't forget to bring water and some food.

GO50 Health Walks
Health walks are a chance for people of all ages to take part in local walks led by volunteers. Walks last between 1 - 1½ hours and are suitable for people of all abilities. There will always be a leader and a backmarker to make sure everyone gets back safely.
Health Walks are ideal for people who would like to improve their health by increasing their physical activity levels. The walks are friendly and supportive and particularly beneficial to those who are getting little or no exercise, recovering from illness, or lacking in confidence. Walkers are encouraged to walk at a pace that suits them. Ideally, this pace means you will feel slightly warmer, breathe a little faster and your heart will beat a little faster.
