The Notts Guided Walking Programme2017
Walkers with Chris Thompson on one of his summer evening walks
are more than somewhat amazed at the new slogan
visible on Alexandra Lodge in Bestwood park, Nottingham
Guided Walks is a compilation of guided walks for those who want to improve their fitness, enjoy our countryside and wild-life, and make new friends.
The leaders on this site are all experienced in leading walks.
Additional walks will be added later in the year as more groups publish their programmes. Please call back to see what’s added.
Most walks are free although a few walks by wild-life or preservation societies
may cost a small fee. Details are given where this applies.
Please browse through our site and make sure you read the articles in the panel
on the right for more information about walking for health.
The Notts Guided Walks Partnership is an independent funded group.
The vast majority of our walks are arranged and published by walking clubs, historical and preservation societies, plus statutory bodies like the parish councils and Forestry Commission.

The Press and TV have been buzzing again with news
Government’s further initiative to encourage more exercise.
It’s the way to eat well and get fitter at the same time.
Have a look at this summary of recent research that makes it all quite clear…..
