Walking is an ideal form of exercise; it's free and requires no equipment, and is one of the best ways for you to become more active. Regular walking can improve confidence, stamina and energy, and help improve your heart.
You can use the walking route planner from walkit to choose a route, get directions and check the number of calories your walk will burn. You can also use the Public Rights of Way map to find all public footpaths and bridleways in the town to ensure you don't stray on to private land. Remember, all of our parks are suitable for walking and are a good place to start.
Remember to be safe when you're walking and cross roads carefully. Before setting out on a walk in the countryside, ensure you've read the Countryside Code.
