now part of Gillingham Walkers are Welcome 

An informal group set up for those who wish to walk in the area of Gillingham, Dorset.

Fresh Air   ~   Friendship   ~   Feel The Difference


This group is for anyone interested in walking in company around the Gillingham, Dorset area.

We welcome everyone who wants to walk, particularly if you have never done much walking or not walked recently.  We aim to provide enjoyable walks at a pace comfortable for all.  It's a chance to meet new people and improve your health too. 


Regular walks

One hour moderate walks on Mondays, starting in front of the Barn Surgery, Newbury

Two hour across country walks on the first Saturday of each month with varying start points (see below).
