Walking: Useful Links & Resources

There is a whole range of walking related information, advice and resources available on the internet. Below we have picked out just a few websites which may be of interest:

Active 10

The Active 10 app is a free walking tracker from the NHS. It’s a simple way to take away the guesswork of how active you have been. The app uses sensors in your device to anonymously record every minute of walking you do, even when they’re spread out across the day.

To achieve an ‘active 10’ you just need to clock up 10 minutes of brisk walking throughout the day, you don’t have to walk for 10 consecutive minutes!

Living Streets

Living Streets is the national charity that stands up for pedestrians. Some of their campaigns include; safer routes to schools, protecting and repairing pavements, tackling air pollution and much more! Visit their website to explore more about what they do and even get involved!


Turn footsteps into forests with Treekly. By walking 5,000 steps per day, you can help contribute to global reforestation projects. The app is free to download on iOS and Android devices.

The Ramblers

The Ramblers promote walking for pleasure, health, leisure and transport to everyone of all ages, backgrounds and abilities in towns and cities as well as in the countryside. Their website is full of resources to get you walking, including organised walking routes, advice on walking with health conditions and the benefits of walking.
