The Notts Guided Walking Programme

2018

Front cover

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.

Latest Research for walking

 

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

a.staniforth1@ntlworld.com

For the 5th 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.
Thank you also to Nottinghamshire County Council
for their web-site link, plus promotional, financial and distribution help.

 

Hats off to our leaders!

 

Hat and hand

The Partnership is very aware that we owe
a huge debt to our walk leaders.
A word of thanks at the end of your walk would be appreciated
by every one, we know.

We’d like to mention Chris Thompson, our Chairman,
who will have clocked up 36 walks by January next year.

We’ve had large batches from Dave Evans of Whaley Thorns (30),
Keith Wallace of Mansfield/Sherwood (23)
and 29 from The Notts Wildlife Trust.

We are grateful to all our contributors, but especially to these.


We are up to 156 walks this year in booklet and website with even more Health Walks from this scheme. Please check this website from time to time for any extra walks that we could not include in our booklet
before we had to go to print.

Our thanks to all you leaders.
We hope you enjoyed leading and will do so again for us.
This is really an excellent opportunity to gain new members for your group. Our research again confirms that more than 3 out of ten of the people
who join these walks are new, as a result of our publicity.

Chat to them, make them welcome - sign them up!

With a still larger Big Lottery grant,
we’re again covering a much wider area of the County.

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!
