Walk Description:

GeNTLE WALX that incorporate balance work, flexibility and strength exercises and maybe a bit o fforest bathing i or relaxation too. Great for those who are getting back into exercise, have a health condition or simply want to move well and be fit for life! Our wellbeing Instructors are qualified to deliver WALX for all levels so it’s never too late to take that first step.

This is a friendly mixed ability groufor those wanting to walk with or without poles. (Many members  prefer to walk with poles a s they find it  is more effective than ordinary walking .When poles are used we are able to engage the upper body, core muscles, improve posture, help with balance  and burn more calories.)

This is a mixed ability walk and we split into 2 groups so all can walk at apace which is beneficial for the individual 

Led by Kerley,  and Derek, WALX guide, we will find the right pace for you. Castle park  offers flat easy terrain on well-maintained paths  and an incline to get the heart rate and breathing rate up and lots of benches if you need to rest.


“I enjoyed learning the technique and found that the poles eased the pressure on my dodgy knee! I do a lot of ordinary walking when I have time and I did notice the difference. The most surprising thing to come out of the experience was my introduction to smoveys, which I love and use all the time! I hope to resume Nordic walking if and when the opportunity presents.” 

“Since starting Nordic walking almost three months ago, my general health and walking has improved immensely. Just before coming to the Nordic Walking sessions, my arthritic knees meant I could not walk very far and I had to use a walking stick to get about. Barely three months later and I love Nordic walking and my general walking has improved greatly with no need for my walking stick!”   Mrs J. B. 


Location Notes:

Meet in main car park accessed from main gates off A56. (Not the Art centre car park which is where a sat nav will direct you). So don't turn up Fountains Lane or Park lane. See map. If you are travelling from Frodsham in the direction of Helsby or Chester, the entrance will be on the left hand side just beyond the railway bridge. If travelling in the direction of Runcorn from Chester the entrance will be on the right just before the railway bridge. The nearest postcode is WA6 7AX. If carpark full, park in Netherton Drive WA6 6D. Park by the top field and walk down to carpark.
