Severn Strollers - Walks in South East Shropshire

About Us

The Severn Strollers Walking for Health scheme was set up in Bridgnorth in 2003 as part of the National Walking for Health initiative and now has walks in 11 areas across South East Shropshire.

Walks are graded from 1 to 3 for the Walking for Health walks:

Grade 1 walk– suitable for people who have not walked much before, are looking to be more active, or are returning from injury or illness. They are up to 30 minutes on flat ground or gentle slopes with mainly firm surfaces and no steps or stiles.

Grade 2  walk – suitable for people who are looking to increase their activity levels. They are between 30 - 60 minutes and may include some moderate slopes, steps, uneven surfaces and possibly stiles.

Grade 3 walk– for people looking for more challenging walks and increasing their level of physical activity. They are generally 45 – 90 minutes and may include steeper slopes, steps, uneven surfaces and stiles.

All walks are lead by qualified walk leaders who will endeavour to provide a suitable walk for all abilities.

Next Step Walks ( Grade 4 )- Countryside walks up to 2 hours. Next Step walks are not part of the Walking for Health scheme, they act as progression walks on from the WFH for those who are looking for a more challenging walk, these walks are also led by trained Volunteer Walk Leaders.

 

 !!! IMPORTANT DETAILS !!!

You will be asked to complete a short health questionnaire before your first health walk. If you are unsure of your fitness please consult your GP or Health Care Professional.

 All walks are free. All you need is a comfortable pair of flat shoes with a good grip. All walkers walk at their own risk.

Due to the nature of the group walks participants are encouraged NOT to bring dogs (except guide dogs) on Health Walks.
