Walk Description:

Todays walk: Pewsey Downs. A longer circuit of Wansdyke and Milk Hill. We start at Honeystreet Mill Cafe by walking up the canal to Standen St Bernard and then up to the Wansdyke and up towards Milk Hill and back via Alton Barnes White Horse and Walkers Hill. 

Notes: Please note there may be livestock on the route and we may need to divert the route. There are sunflowers on this route!!

Cafe: I will seek permission to park at the cafe or nearby. We can end here for a coffee or snack - Eat out to Help Out scheme is in place for 50% off food and non alcoholic drinks.

 

You must re-visit your PARQ and answer all questions including decalrations on COVID 19. Please bring your own equipement or if you need to borrow poles you will be provided with Activator strapless poles which are much easier to clean.

All activities will respect social distancing guidelines of 2 metres apart.

You can wear a mask if you would prefer to but this is not mandatory.

Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking – it makes something we can all do… twice as effective! Nordic Walking uses poles to in order to add two major benefits to walking.

The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs The poles help to propel the walker along – this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier!

Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running as the poles are not planted in front of the walker/runner but in a specific way that increases the use of the upper body. It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.

Note: To participate in regular Nordic WALX, you must have completed our Nordic Freedom Course.
