A Big Thank You

...goes out to all those who continue to feed back on our Circular Walks Programme that was created nearly 20 years ago.

We remain reliant and eternally grateful on your feedback for existing circular walks. Thank you!

Walking4Health - Led Health Walks Programme

Walks ScheduleDid you know that we train volunteers to become Walk Leaders, to help us to deliver short health walks across the Stroud District?

We are keen for more people to walk more, whether it's for fun, to feel better, to meet new friends or to improve overall mental and physical wellbeing.

Each walk is led by a fully qualified volunteer walk leader who ensures that the walks are safe and at the right intensity.

All walks are FREE of charge and last between 30 - 90 minutes. To find out more, why not check out our latest programme in the PDF (please be aware that the programme is occasionally subject to change and if you do place print outs on notice boards, please keep a watching brief for any changes and reprint) latest programme or find out more about the Walking for Health walk grading system that we use.

The Stroud District is situated in the South of the Cotswolds and has been designated an area of outstanding natural beauty and a natural choice for anyone interested in walking.

Not only does walking allow you to take in the outstanding scenery around the five valleys but also offers a number of benefits to your health. Throughout the district there are a number of organised walks that you can take part in. These are held regularly and are led by fully qualified walk leaders. This allows for a walk that is structured, risk assessed, the right intensity and of course, so you don't get lost!

The aim of this website is to provide people with information about walks that take place throughout the Stroud District. In particularly the site allows groups and individuals to advertise their walks to the community.

Did you know that many of the walks detailed on this website are close to, or go past, main bus routes in the district - please see the following links detailing bus routes, route maps and timetables and Traveline as a one-stop contact point for travel information:

These pages are updated regularly so keep your eye open for new walks being added. If you know of a walk in your area and would like to advertise the walk then please let us know.
