The Huntingdonshire Health Walks scheme is provided free as part of the national Walking for Health initiative.
The scheme runs a range of regular walks across the district. You can enjoy the walk at your own pace, but with the added benefit of being in the company of other walkers and trained walk leaders.
When and where are the sessions?
See our brochure for times and locations of all health walks:
- Health Walks Brochure: March 2017 - August 2017
- Health Walks Brochure: September 2017 - February 2018
Who can attend?
Everyone is welcome on the walks, no matter your age or ability. Children under the age of 16 need to be accompanied by an adult.
Concerned about joining for the first time? Try one of our shorter green walks which last 20-30 minutes and are suitable for pushchairs and wheelchair users.
Do I need to book?
Getting started is simple, just choose your walk location, turn up 15 minutes before your first walk to meet the walk leader, fill in a health questionnaire (or complete it online) and off you go!
How much does it cost?
From 1 September 2015 the Huntingdonshire Health Walks scheme is inviting walkers to make a voluntary donation to support the running and continuation of the scheme. The suggested donation amount is £20 per year per walker. This is not compulsory - it is up to you if, and how much, you want to donate.
Can I bring my dog?
You are welcome to bring your dog on all walks except for the:
- Great Fen and Great Fen Dragonfly walks in Ramsey
- Brampton Wood walk
- Stukeley Stroll and Woodland Ramble in Huntingdon and
- Buckden Village walk.
We recommend that dogs are kept under ‘close control’ at all times. This doesn’t necessarily mean on a lead, but we ask that dogs are kept on a lead if you cannot rely on their obedience. The usual rules apply regarding fouling. We ask all dog owners to be respectful of other walkers and to remember that not all people are dog lovers.
If you can’t make one of the organised health walks or prefer to go at your own pace, take a look at the following maps for inspiration and information on self-guided walks in the district:
