About walking

Enjoyable, healthy and free, it’s no surprise that walking is popular in Cheshire East.

And it’s getting even more so – from 2013-14 to 2014-15, there was a 14% increase in the number of local people walking at least five times a week. (see below for source)

Getting fitter: a walk in the park

Most journeys involve at least a small amount of walking anyway, but by building on-foot travel into your trips you can reap serious health benefits.

Steadily walking just one mile – which takes an average person under 20 minutes – burns around 100 calories, and regularly walking can reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes.

Take a walk!

Nothing’s easier than going for a stroll or fitting it around your schedule.

Why not have a wander on your lunch break or even get off a bus stop earlier on a regular journey?
