The Notts Guided Walking Programme

2016

Nottinghamshire walks

Notts 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.


HAPPY WALKING!

 




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.

BIG LOTTERY GRANT


With the Big Lottery grant, we’re covering
a much wider area of the County.
If your club or organisation has benefited from appearing here,
we’d like to know.
It really helps us to obtain these grants.

Please email

For the third year we have been very fortunate in obtaining a generous
grant from the Big Lottery, and another from
The Nottinghamshire Community Foundation.

These grants make an enormous difference to our booklet circulation.
More people now eagerly await its publication and enjoy the walks.

We are now being noticed!

May we also express our appreciation to Portland Print and
Notts Area Ramblers for their help by advertising in our booklet.

Walking for Health

The 'Walking for Health Initiative' in Nottinghamshire is part of a move to improve the Nation's health by walking.

There are many such groups, with trained and insured leaders who take parties out for a gentle 2 or 4 miles in their local area.

It is impractical to include all these walks on this site although we do have quite a few and they are growing in number, there may be one right up your street!
