Walking for Health is England’s largest network of health walks with over 400 active schemes, helping people across the country lead a more active lifestyle. We’ve done this with great success for over 14 years, improving the mental and physical well-being of thousands of people.
Come and walk with us
Many of our walkers start walking to improve their health, but find it easy to keep coming back because of all the new friends they’ve made. So as well as all the physical health benefits, Walking for Health is also great for your social life!
Walking for Health is run by the Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Henbury Healthy Walking Group
The Group began walking in June 2004 with Tom Webb as leader.
Most of us are old enough to qualify for BusPasses, which we use extensively. The walks are fairly gentle and typically last between 1.5 and 2 hours.
We travel to all parts of Bristol and also to nearby towns in North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
You are welcome to join us - we're quite friendly - to see how you like it! If you do come along please, wear suitable clothing and shoes.The starting times are dictated by the bus service for walks other than the local Henbury / Brentry walks. Nearly all our walkers enjoy the benefits of Free bus Concessions for people over sixty years of age. All walks are checked by the leaders for Health and Safety and do not involve difficult terrain. Some Walk Leaders are on each walk as required by Bristol City Council. This is a group to help you exercise easily, see parts of the area in a different light and be amongst friends each Thursday.
