Group name: Wolverhampton
This group is a part of Staffordshire Area.
Our activities include:
Short and easy walks, Path maintenance
Our group helps walkers of all ages to enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk.
We organise led walks ranging from 4.5 miles to 20+ miles in length – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. We walk many Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year, some Wednesday evenings from May to August and also during the week - see list of forthcoming walks on this page in 'Our group walks' box.
