Walking for Health

All are welcome to join our Walking Group.  Whether you’ve walked with us in the past or not, all are welcome to come along and participate in our short “easy” walks which start from a different location each month and follow good paths with plenty of points of farming interest.

Led by trained walk leaders, Pauline Bramley and John Thomas and Kay Allinson  the walks are on Thursday afternoons starting at 1.30pm.  We generally aim to do a circular route which takes about one hour at a steady, easy pace.  Some routes include stiles and/or short ascents/descents.  Wherever possible there’ll be an opportunity to visit a café afterwards for refreshments and a good chat.

There is no need to book in advance.  Call us on: 01629 810903  if you would like to have a chat about any aspect of our walks.  To check walks are taking place on a particular day please ring; 07538785666

Our next walk: Thursday 4th November – Derwent Dams
Meet in the long layby which is half a mile on from the traffic lights where the Bamford junction meets the A57. The layby is on the left hand side of the A57 before Ashopton Bridge. An autumnal walk beside Derwent Dams followed by
refreshments at the Bird Café.

Our walks are short and ‘Easy’ but may involve some stiles or ascents/descents over a short distance. They have
been chosen to ensure we are on good surfaces for walking whatever the weather – everyone welcome!
However, in the event of extreme weather conditions, please contact Pauline on 07538 785666 to confirm the
walk is going ahead.

Please wear sturdy footwear and clothing to suit the weather conditions.  For any further information contact: Pauline Bramley 07538 785666
