We have a good range of walks here, so that there is something suitable for all levels of ability and all ages. The Green Bank walk is especially suitable for anyone unused to physical activity.

There are also regular led walks for adults with learning difficulties and people with mental health problems, plus a programme of monthly family friendly walks. Ring us for more details.
