Tadley & District

Nordic Walking

Why do we do Nordic Walking? Our whole body is exercised… it’s kind to the old joints …the fresh air clears our lungs and heads… the scenery uplifts our hearts… the company is enjoyable. We walk at a brisk(ish) pace, but you don’t need to be super fit! Our Friday walk is always the same route on a mixture of footpaths and quiet roads, central to the area. We arrange a second ‘rolling’ walk most weeks on different days (Monday one week, Tuesday the next etc) with a different starting point, enabling us to enjoy the wide variety of countryside in our area.

Some of our favourite walks have been: White Hill, Kingsclere; Ashford Hill water meadows; Silchester Roman walls; Bramley Frith bluebell woods; Aldermaston wharf and Padworth mill; Wyeford moated house and The Priory….

Our walks always start at 10am and rarely finish after 11.30. An email is sent out weekly with details of the meeting place, and lifts can be arranged. We have a spare set of poles you can borrow the first few times.

Want to give it a try? Then come along at 10am on a Friday to the car park next to the playpark and Broomsquire hotel on the corner of Silchester Road/Tadley Common Road, or contact our group leader Cath Cooper by email (cathcooper48@gmail.com) or text (07400953034)
