Cockermouth Walking 4 Health Group

About Us

Why not start walking your way to a healthier lifestyle?

Our health walks follow the quiet lanes, alleyways and riverside paths of the historic market town of Cockermouth and the surrounding area. We are a sociable bunch and always find time to visit a tea room or coffee shop at the end of our walks.

Our walks are FREE and take place every other Wednesday.

 Meet at The Kirkgate Centre (CA13 9PJ), at 12.30pm for walks around Cockermouth Town.

Meet at Wakefield Road Car Park (CA13 0HR), at 11.30am for walks outside Cockermouth. Transport from Wakefield Road to the walk location will be on a car share basis; passengers usually make an optional donation of £2.00 towards fuel costs. We recommend sturdy shoes or boots for these walks. These walks are subject to weather conditions and may be replaced by an alternative walk at short notice.

 

If it's your first walk, please contact Gwyn (01900 829579) prior to the day of the walk, in case of late changes to the programme

All walks are led by qualified walk leaders and are between 15 - 60 minutes duration

We tailor our walks to the needs of each walker

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear

Start walking slowly and build up steadily

Walk at a pace which lets you walk and talk without getting breathless
