The Notts Guided Walking Programme2013
The photo above shows walkers out enjoying some autumn sunshine
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 autumn/winter programmes. Please call back to about August 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.

Hats off to our Leaders!
The Partnership is very aware that we owe an enormous debt to our walk
leaders, who not only just lead these
walks but carry out a recce first, fill in
the forms, then worry about it until it’s
A word of thanks at the end of
your walk would be appreciated by all of them, we know.
We like specially to mention Dave Evans and Neil Helsby

them, and Chris Thompson, who will have clocked up
35 of them by himself at the end of the year.

Our thanks to you all.
We hope you enjoyed it and will lead again for us.
Is it too much to hope that a few more leaders might join us next year in this venture?
