Wirksworth walks

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 Wirksworth. What you can expect - trained walk leaders, good company with safe routes, and short walks around Wirksworth for beginners.

Our friendly, welcoming walks help people make new friends and get out and about—it's perfect for people who don't fancy intense exercise. You can start off slowly and build up gradually as you get more confident.

Think about it... your legs were made for walking. It's a wonderful form of natural exercise that can keep you healthy, living longer—and can even put a smile on your face.
