Health walks in West Dorset

Short walks around Dorchester and Bridport take place every week. These volunteer led walks usually take around 30 minutes and are on fairly level ground. The walks are at a pace to suit everyone.

You can just turn up and meet the walk leaders and fellow walkers on the day. New comers are always made welcome and are asked to arrive 10 minutes early to meet the leaders and complete a short registration form.  There is no charge for the walks.

  • Exercise referral in West Dorset

    Some health problems are made worse or even caused by people not taking enough exercise. The idea of West Dorset's Exercise Referral Scheme is to help people to be more active to improve their health.
