Walking for Health

Free walks led by a qualified leader

This is a scheme that has been introduced in East Devon to encourage people of all ages including those with health and mobility problems, and those recovering from illness, to walk for their health. These walks are free and led by qualified volunteer walk leaders, who have undergone the National Walking for Health training

These walks are a mixture of town and country walks and are aimed at those who are doing very little or no exercise at the moment, but who would like to become more active The walks are graded by time rather than distance.
