Stafford Borough WalkWise

About Us

Stafford Borough Council's WalkWise programme offers a variety of led walks in and around the Borough. The walks are designed to suit walkers of all abilities, with shorter 'beginner' walks taking place every week. Longer 'progression' walks are offered once or twice a month for those who want more of a challenge.
