Walk & Talk Totnes

About Us

Walk & Talk Totnes is part of Walking for Health in South Devon.

There are  5 other schemes in the South Hams including Kingsbridge, Ivybridge, Dartmouth, Modbury & South Brent.

The walks are led by trained, friendly, volunteer walk leaders who will be sure to give you a warm welcome. If you are a new walker, please arrive 10 minutes before the start time to complete a simple registration form.

All walks are free, all you need are comfortable shoes, loose fitting clothing and waterproofs if wet. And do bring some money if you wish to stop for refreshments during or after the walk.

Walking is the lowest risk of all physical activities, yet produces massive benefits to physical fitness and mental wellbeing. It is a great way to explore your local area, make new friends and learn more about your immediate community.

Active Devon provides training and support for Walking For Health, so that more people in the area can enjoy being part of a local health walk group.
