About Selby Health Walks:

Based in the historic market town of Selby in North Yorkshire, we are a friendly
community walking group run entirely by volunteers and providing a year long
programme of easy to moderate guided walks in Selby and the surrounding

Our simple Mission Statement

'To improve people's health and wellbeing by encouraging them  to walk more in their own neighbourhood'

All walks are led
by experienced leaders and range in length from 1 to 6 miles.

By the nature of
our location the walks are generally over flat terrain but some walks do
include gentle gradients and a number of the walks also include stiles.

Selby Town and
most villages in the Selby District are included in our walks programme which
provides over 100 walks per year.

The walks are free
so you are welcome join us and enjoy the benefits of an outdoor activity and
experience the social and health benefits of meeting and walking with like
minded people whilst enjoying the pleasures of the open countryside and
learning more about the areas in which you live.

If you would like
to join one of our walks just come along to the start 15 minutes before the
scheduled start time and introduce  yourself
to the walk leader.

Our quarterly
walks programme, which can be found on 'Our Walks' page,  provides  all the information you will require to enable
you to select a walk or walks which you would like to join.

We also provide a small number of starter walks for those who are unable to walk far. In particular, our aim is to encourage people who may be recovering from illness or are wishing to become more active. The starter walks are advertised in our programme and usually range from 1 to 2 miles in length.

We look forward to
seeing you.

    Enjoying a countryside walk

A group of happy walkers enjoying the Summer sunshine en route back to Scarborough on our away day in 2015.
Forty walkers enjoyed the trip and whilst a few spent the day in Scarborough, the majority chose from either a four mile walk or a longer eight mile walk both of which enjoyed sea and coastal views from the cliff top walks
