​Join a led walk and beat the lockdown blues!

The Bury Walking for Health scheme weekly led walks are to gradually resume to give people the chance to get outdoors and enjoy the borough’s countryside.

The Bury Walk with Me outings are also designed to improve people’s health and wellbeing. Eight of the scheme’s usual weekly walks will be gradually re-introduced over the next three weeks to include walks in Radcliffe, Prestwich, Greenmount, Chesham and Birtle, plus two walks under the BEATS initiative leaving from Castle Leisure Centre in Bury each week.

Due to coronavirus restrictions, numbers will be limited and places must be booked: for a complete list of walks, dates and details of how to book, go to

Walkers will be in groups of no more than six, keeping two metres apart. All are advised to bring hand sanitiser and a face mask and not to share food or drink with other walkers.
