Walking for health in Shropshire


Walking for healthWalking is fun, free, can be done anytime, anywhere and has positive effects on many aspects of our health, such as reducing stress or improving mental wellbeing.


Walking for health encourages you to enjoy your local natural spaces and take part in organised health walks. Founded by Natural England, the initiative aims to support people, particularly those who take little exercise, to do regular short walks in their communities.


There are a number of walking for health groups across Shropshire, offering walks of varying intensity to make them suitable for all. Walks are led by dedicated volunteer walk leaders who are trained to lead walks safely and efficiently.
