Cheltenham: Walk Well

About Us

**Local walks for Local people**

Come and join us on one of our regular, weekly walks which are FREE walks led by locally trained volunteers.

We walk 9 times a week Monday to Friday from various locations around Cheltenham and would love you to join us. We offer different options at each walk - shorter, 30 minute walks and a longer 45min-1 hour. We hope that this will help to accommodate those new to walking as well as those who would like more of a challenge.

SUMMER SUNDAY WALKS!

September 2nd - Leckhampton Hill (New this year)

The route is 5.4km/3.4miles on firm ground, which can be slippery when wet, tracks and tarmac. The route passes the Devil’s chimney and offers excellent views over Charlton Kings and Cheltenham.

Meet at 2.15 in the car park off Hartley Lane, which is the first left past Daisybank Road, leaving Cheltenham up the Leckhampton Road. Follow the lane uphill past the quarry car park and as the lane levels out the car park is on the left just past the modern house.

October 7th - Cleeve Hill

The 5¾ km/3½miles route starts from the golf club and crosses the common, with fine views over the race course to Cheltenham and beyond. Reaching the aerials and dew pond, an optional short diversion visits the highest point in Gloucestershire. The route returns along a track from which a second optional diversion, involving a short but steep climb, can be made to visit the topograph with stunning views over the Severn Vale.

Meet at 2.15 in the quarry car park, turning left after the cattle grid past the Golf course club house which is up the lane off the B4632 Winchcombe road at its highest point. The route is dry underfoot but wrap up warm as it can be windy.

We have a fantastic group of volunteers who support our programme offering a friendly and warm welcome to new and returning walkers. Tea and coffee is encouraged after each walk and many of our walkers take up this opportunity - helping people to get to know each other and build friendships.

We are always looking to add to our group of volunteer walk leaders. If you are interested in leading and/or supporting a walk on our existing programme or you would like to start up your own walk, please contact the Health and Wellbeing Coordinator. We can offer you;

- Free walk leader training (1 day)
- Support to market and promote your walk
- Membership to our Walk Leader Forum

So, if you enjoy walking, meeting new people and socialising, have good local knowledge and want to help out in your local community, please contact Chris Davis for more information.
