South Staffordshire Progressive Walks

walking festival 07

To make the transition to our progressive walks easier, the first half hour (approximately) of most of them are designed to be equivalent to Walking for Health Grade 3 walks. However, they are usually more than 90 minutes in duration and are likely to include slopes, steps, stiles and uneven surfaces. They may even be something a bit different, such as fitness or Nordic walks.



Some of these progressive walks are group walks that are led by a trained walk leader whilst others are mapped walks with directions for those of you want to go it alone or with a friend or two.


The walks can be viewed by clicking on the appropriate link below.
