West Northumberland Health Walks

About Us

West Northumberland Health walks provide short (2-3 mile) walks on a weekly basis from 10 towns and villages across West Northumberland. All the walks are free and there is no booking procedure. Individual programmes for each group are avilable from the co-ordinator on 01670 622368 or email: loliver@activenorthumberland.org.uk All the walks are led by trained volunteer leaders and the co-ordinator always welcomes enquiries from anyone interested in training to be a leader.

We are now offering shorter walks (10-30) minute walks  for beginners or people who feel they can't manage a full hour. The walks are aimed at getting people started,and those with health problems that prevent them from completing the full walk. They will happen once per month within the groups we already have, there will be a dedicated person to walk with you and take you back to the start as necessary. Please contact walks co-ordinator if you are interested in this kind of walk.
