Walking for Health East Staffordshire - Burton upon Trent

About Us

The Walking for Health Scheme in East Staffordshire consists of a number of weekly led walks across the Borough including:

Stapenhill Gardens, The Washlands, Barton under Needwood, Yoxall, Tutbury, Stretton, Rolleston on Dove, Horninglow and Eton; plus an additional walk in the summer period at The Hollows, Stapenhill.

We offer a wide variety of rural and urban walks that are free and open to all.  We organise walks that can take between 10 to 30 minutes, 45 to 60 minutes and also up to 90 minutes for the more experienced walkers.

All routes are risk assessed and cover mostly flat terrain, however, there may be some inclines or steps, but the walkers will be made aware of these before they start.  So, if there is any issues the route can be adapated,therefore catering for everyone.

Our trained Volunteer Walk Leaders will guide you on a structured health walk through the historical and pretty sights of the borough.  There is always a back marker present, who walks at the pace of the final walker and also ensures that all the group gets back safely.  There is also a social side to the walks as at the end most people go for a well deserved cuppa with their new friends.

 

 

The Meadowside, Stapenhilll and Tutbury walks are pushchair and wheelchair friendly.

All walks in the programme are free.

Our Events

Step into summer with the Stapenhill Evening Walk

Walking for Health East Staffordshire aims to put a spring into the step of people living in the Burton area by welcoming back the Evening Health Walk on Tuesday 18th April to September. The group will meet at Stapenhill Hollows, Stapenhill Road, Burton upon Trent, DE15 9EF at 6.30pm ready for a 6.45 pm start.  Small car park available.

The walks take approximately 45 to 60 minutes to complete (depending on the pace of the walker) and are led by our trained Walk Leaders.  The routes vary from week to week to keep everyone motivated. 

If you would like to join us all you have to do is turn up on the night wearing a comfortable pair of shoes and bring a bottle of water, complete a very short Outdoor Health Questionnaire and you are ready to go.

Walks take place every week, rain or shine and they are totally free.
