Local walks for Nov/Dec

At this time of year, it’s delightful to relax in front of a crackling fire with a glass of something warming- although it always feels better if you have experienced the delights of a bracing ramble over the Shropshire countryside first.

Walking has been described as the perfect exercise and we completely agree! It not only helps everyone live happier, healthier lives but can also help to keep your mind and your social life healthy too, so why not make a start and find a walk near you today.

The Severn Strollers Walking for Health scheme was set up as part of the National Walking for Health initiative. All the walks have been graded for you to suit levels of ability:
Grade 1 – up to 30 mins; flat ground or gentle slopes.
Grade 2 – 30 – 60 mins; may include some moderate slopes.
Grade 3 – 45 – 90 mins; include steeper slopes, steps, uneven surfaces and stiles.
Next Step Walks 4 – up to 2 hrs; not part of the Walking for Health scheme.
