W4H Bedfordshire Central Beds

About Us

The scheme runs a range of led health walks throughout Central Bedfordshire. The walks range from 10 minutes to 90 minutes and are designed to introduce people to the benefits of regular moderate exercise.

Walk 4 Health Bedfordshire, co-ordinated by Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity, covers the Central Bedfordshire and Bedford Borough areas of the county.

There are currently 27 different  walk programmes operating under this scheme, most of these are weekly walks though some are fortnightly. Due to the fact that most of our walks are 'circular', with various shortcuts available , routes timings range from around 10 minutes to 90 minutes.

Central Beds programmes currently operate in Ampthill, Arlesey, Barton-le-Clay, Biggleswade, Dunstable, Flitwick, Henlow, Houghton Regis, Leighton Buzzard, Marston Moretaine, Shefford, Potton and Sandy.

Bedford Borough programmes include Bedford Embankment, Black Tom, De Parys & Brickhill, Kempston, Great Barford, Goldington, Harrold Odell Country Park and Wilstead.

For further information about the walks please see below or take a look at the W4H programmes list download ('Central Step Right Up Prog') or the 'walk specific' calendars. Alternatively you can contact Mike Fayers - see details below.
