Health walks

Organised walks led by a qualified walk leader. We organise walks every week throughout the year come rain or shine.

All HealthWorks services have been adjusted to restrict the spread of Coronavirus.

Health walker stories

Hear how great health walks are from the walkers and walk leaders themselves

When I retired, I wanted to take up an activity which would give me regular exercise and enable me to meet new people. I had never tried organised walks before so joining a group and exploring the open spaces and woods in the area was a real joy as was the companionship of being with other walkers. 

Walking is a great calorie burner. It is low intensity, low impact, sustainable and easy to do. All you need is a good pair of shoes, suitable clothing for the weather and enthusiasm! Come along and join in with this great form of exercise, which is healthy, fun and free.

Regular brisk walking can help prevent heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes. All walk leaders are volunteers who help us to help the local community to improve their health, fitness and well being.
