Wirksworth walks


Wirksworth walks - Wednesday


Walking as part of a small group is a good way to start and keep going. You will make friends, encourage each other and discover new walks in and around your Wirksworth. What you can expect - trained walk leaders, good company with safe routes, and short walks around Wirksworth for beginners.

Our friendly, welcoming walks help people make new friends and get out and about—it's perfect for people who don't fancy intense exercise. You can start off slowly and build up gradually as you get more confident.

Think about it... your legs were made for walking. It's a wonderful form of natural exercise that can keep you healthy, living longer—and can even put a smile on your face.

Monday afternoon walks (weekly) - unfortunately we do not have enough Monday walk leaders at present - please come on Wednesday


Wednesday morning walks (weekly) 

Walk leaders: Rob, Peter and David
Walk levelModerate and Easy
Time: 9:45am 
Duration: 90-120 mins
Meeting pointWirksworth Leisure Centre

Since Covid we walk from the Leisure Centre . Each route is planned by the walk leaders before the day, taking into account the weather forecast and conditions underfoot.

When this walk has enough leaders, it will either split into two groups from the beginning or the group will walk together and then there will be an option to peel off home with a leader.

If there are not enough leaders then this walk will take into account the level of the walkers present and one suitable walk will be taken.
