Walking in the countryside is great fun and helps improve your health and fitness. We have a range of walking opportunities to suit all abilities. For anyone that wants regular walks, why not try our weekday walking groups. This is a chargeable service, invoiced every two months, and people are paying out of their personalised budgets:
Walk on the Wild Side (Wednesdays)
The group combines shorter walks of up to 5 miles with a spot of nature study along the way.
Weekday Walking Group (Thursdays)
The group covers up to 8 miles each day and is a great way to improve your health and fitness.
Both groups meet at Community House at 10am and go out for a full day in the countryside, getting dropped off home at the end of the day (in the Harrogate area). Our staff are supported by plenty of volunteers who are trained in Sighted Guiding, so can assist you if you have a visual impairment. Please get in touch if you are interested in joining.
I love getting out into the fresh air and doing something a bit different. I really enjoy walking over the Humber Bridge. I love coming out with Open Country as there’s so many different people to meet.Andrew
