Fortnightly walks in and around Ampthill

Short led walks, all welcome

Ampthill Health Walks are for anyone who wants to get more active. They are about 3 miles long and last about an hour and a quarter. Everyone walks at their own brisk pace, with a backmarker to make sure no one is left behind. There may be some hills and in bad weather there might also be some mud but we do our best to minimise this!
The walks are all free. 
Please note that dogs are not allowed on the walks and ensure you wear suitable footwear.

After the walks we usually find a cafe or similar for refreshments.
We are a very friendly group so why not come along to one of our walks and see if it's for you?

For more information contact Mike Fayers on or 01234 832619
