Wellbeing Walks

The Wellbeing Walks scheme welcomes over 300 regular walkers a week in and around Clevedon, Nailsea, Portishead, Weston-super-Mare, Winscombe, Long Ashton and Yatton.

Our walks are led by friendly trained volunteer walk leaders who welcome you to join their groups. Many walk leaders are also first aid trained.

If you are new or returning to exercise, Wellbeing Walks offer the opportunity to improve fitness at a pace that suits you with the majority of groups providing a number of walks so that all abilities are supported.

We also know that Wellbeing Walks are really important for social engagement as well as the physical benefits exercise brings.

We are putting many of our health walk routes online to support you to continue to walk in your community.


When you arrive at a health walk for the first time you will be asked to complete a walker sign up form.

The leader will tell you about the route at the start; we try to avoid steep hills, stiles, many steps or very muddy/slippery surfaces. However, be prepared for the odd hill and stile, grass, uneven surfaces or puddles after rain. 

Please wear sensible shoes, preferably walking shoes or trainers, especially during the autumn and winter months.

Please note only registered assistance dogs are permitted on the health walks.
