Walk Your Way To Health is a local group set up to extend the Let’s Walk
Bishopston map, created in 2015 to encourage local walking.
Let’s Walk North Bristol
The extension adds three useful easy-access routes around the area. It consists of two routes from GP surgeries to Southmead Hospital, together with an “Access Fitness” route made up of three linked loops, offering a choice of distances from half a mile to 2.75 miles. All routes are on surfaced paths or pavements, so are suitable for wheelchairs and buggies, whether people want to get fit (after surgery or ill-health) or to keep fit.
In addition there are three routes, centred on the Hospital, and created for staff and visitors by the Sustainable Development Unit at North Bristol NHS Trust. They are: Horfield Hike, Monks Park Meander and Walks to Wellbeing.
