Walking is good for our health, an excellent way to socialise, and is a form of active travel - sustainable and carrying for the environment. 

Your legs and lungs will feel better after a short or long walk , and being outside and in amongst green spaces is excellent for our well being. 

The green spaces, countryside and agricultural land in Gloucestershire are stunning! 

Protecting natural Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire is a highly diverse county and is particularly special for its ancient woodland, unimproved limestone grassland, extensive wetlands, old orchards and species-rich hedgerows. It supports a range of protected and priority species some of which are becoming increasingly rare such as certain
kinds of bats, amphibians, reptiles, invertebrates and rare plants. The county's biodiversity is a precious resource that needs protecting and enhancing for the future.
