Supported & run by Dorset Council and Moors Valley Park

Health walks are available here in West Moors; these 'volunteer-led' walks leave from the Penn Court Café (access via Pennington Road) each Thursday at 10.00 am. The walks last for around half or one hour, depending upon the level of activity required. Dorset Council web site has more detail & a useful diary of future walks plus other links of interest (opens in a new browser window). Note that all new and returning participants are required to complete a health questionnaire: the web site linked has more detail.

In addition, there is a web site (not specifically connected with Moors Valley) that gives more detail regarding 60-minute walks; a variety of maps and other information is indicated; these walks depart from outside the Petwyn Café at 10.00 am, also on Thursdays - with coffee and chat afterwards. 

For a wide range of other activities available at the nearby Moors Valley park - to suit the whole family, visit the Moors Valley web site.
