Walking is an excellent way to get around. It’s free, reliable and a great way to fit regular exercise into your daily routine, no matter what your age or level of fitness. It requires no specialist equipment other than a good pair of walking shoes. Don’t forget you can use your Green Travel Voucher to spend on walking equipment to help you get out and about instead of taking the car.
Did you know there is a walking group who meet regularly in your area? ‘Health Walks’ are open to all ages
and fitness levels and are a great way to find out more about your area and make new friends. To find out more about the routes, distances and how to join in, visit South Somerset Health Walks. There are also a variety of phone apps on the market that you can use to measure how far you have walked and how many calories you may have burned.
Nearby Yeovil Country Park is 127 acres of woodland, rivers, lakes and open grassland with a children’s play area and excellent open spaces for walking. Visit GPS cycle and walking routes for cycle/ walking maps including the route which goes to Nine Springs and Goldenstones Leisure Centre, taking you past Penn Mill Station and into town, avoiding busy roads.
