Walking for Health

Home » News » Walking for Health

There's a great deal of medical evidence to show that walking is an excellent way of staying fit and healthy, and doing so in social groups also provides significant emotional benefits and a valuable sense of wellbeing.

The Simply Walk programme offers an opportunity to enjoy a leisurely stroll close to Haddenham, on alternate Wednesdays, from Banks Park car park. These are fortnightly walks in and around the village, including some country footpaths and stiles, lasting about 1-1½ hours followed by coffee together afterwards for those who so choose. For more information call 01494 475367, email simplywalks@buckscc.gov.uk or to download a leaflet showing walks in the area — including Stone in the weeks between the Haddenham walks, click here

For those looking for more ambitious levels of exercise, Aylesbury Ramblers offer an extensive programme of walks, varying in their physical challenge and length to suit a wide range of preferences — anything from 4 to 10 miles.

The Autumn 2014 has recently been published, which you can download from this page — simply click on the document shown below the images.
