Thursday morning walks (weekly)

Here are two walks at the same time around the park and central Matlock area. Walking as part of a small group is a good way to start and keep going. You will make friends, encourage each other and discover new walks in and around your neighbourhood. They are perfect for people who don't fancy intense exercise. You can start off slowly and build up gradually as you get more confident.

We also share cars and walk further afield on good surfaces - Edensor, Black Rocks, Cromford, Alport, Bakewell, Whitworth Park, Conkesbury Bridge, Stanton Moor. Routes are chosen on the day.

Walk leaders: Linda, David, Peter, Hilary and Howard 

Walk level: Entry and Very easy walk
Time: 10.00am
