North Dorset Walking for Health

About Us

The North Dorset Walking For Health scheme was established in late 2017 to create new opportunities for people to benefit from group walking opportunities linked to local GP practices, community hospitals and children's centres. The scheme is coordinated by Keith Harrison, Health & Wellbeing Officer employed by North & Mid Dorset GP practices.

Our Walks

Walk name Route options available Length (hours)

All of our walks are free. These are led by friendly trained Walk Leaders and typically end with optional refreshments. No need to book, just turn up a few minutes before the walk starts and you'll find a warm welcome ... whatever the weather!

If you are interested in becoming a Walk Leader or supporting the scheme in any other way please contact Keith on 07825 691508.
