Life changing walks in Durham

Published: 12th September 2019

It was great to join the 46 walkers on the Beamish walk in June. Starting from Beamish Museum, the walk took in woodland and parkland on a sunny day. Walk Durham run 24 different walks each week thanks to the large team of volunteers.

During the walk, Cliff shared his story about how ‘walking changed his life’. After his wife passed away in 2006, Cliff took up walking. Initially struggleing with breathlessness, Cliff has seen his health improve - not just his physical health but his mental health too.
