Move More Health Walks are short, easy walks designed to improve mental and physical wellbeing and provide the opportunity for support and encouragement to walk. This is especially useful for those with lower physical ability or long-term health conditions.
Each walk is led by fully trained and friendly walk leaders who are highly experienced in supporting people to get started.
All walks are free of charge and range in length from roughly 30 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes. You can choose from one of four ability levels:
❤️ Level 1 (up to 30 mins) – a slow pace suitable for those who sometimes have difficulty walking or get out of breath easily
❤️ ❤️ Level 2 (50 mins approx.) – intermediate. Relatively flat with gradual hills in places
❤️ ❤️ ❤️ Level 3 (Up to 1 hr 15mins approx.) – more advanced, brisk pace. May include uneven terrain and steep sections/steps.
We have now introduced level 4 Health Walks for those with higher fitness levels and those wishing to progress from Level 3.
❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ Level 4 (Up to 1 hour 45 mins) – Mixed terrain, uneven surfaces. Likely to include steep sections and/or steps.
During each walk you will feel your breathing rate and heart rate increase and your body temperature will rise. However, it’s important that you also feel comfortable and able to hold a conversation.
Take a look at our current walking timetable(s) below:
Please make sure you are at the start point of your walk a few minutes early, so that one of our trained walk leaders can take your details and register your attendance. Please remember to wear shoes that are comfortable to walk in and make sure you bring sun protection and some water.
There is no special equipment required, other than dressing for the weather conditions and wearing a comfortable pair of shoes, or boots.
Take a look at the bus routes to find out which bus goes past each meeting point.
