North Somerset Walking for Health

About Us

North Somerset Walking for Health welcomes over 300 regular walkers in and around Clevedon, Long Ashton, Nailsea, Portishead, Weston-super-Mare, Winscombe, Worle and Yatton.

If you are new or returning to exercise, walking not only offers the opportunity to improve fitness at a pace that suits you, but also provides the opportunity to meet new people and socialise.

We offer a programme of group walks, encouraging people of all ages to live a more active lifestyle.

Our walks are led by friendly volunteer walk leaders who very much welcome you to join their groups.

Walks vary in duration from 30 minutes up to an hour.  We welcome all abilities and very much encourage those who have not exercised for some time to come and walk.

All our walk leaders are volunteers who have completed Walking for Health training with many of them also first aid trained.

On your first walk, please allow time for registration and the completion of a Walker Registration Form.  

The leader will tell you about the route at the start; we try to avoid steep hills, stiles, many steps or very muddy/slippery surfaces.  However, be prepared for the odd hill and stile, grass, uneven surfaces or puddles after rain.  Please wear sensible shoes, preferably walking shoes or trainers, especially during the autumn and winter months.
