Guided walks are being reintroduced in a phased program from early August 2020. 

Please note that as organised 'outdoor physical activity events', Walking for Health group walks are exempt from the restrictions on social gatherings, known as the ‘rule of six’ in England (from 14 September). 

All walks will require pre-booking, will be in small groups, and will observe social distancing. 

The program will be updated on a regular basis. Please read below for more information.
