Getting Around: Walking


It’ll tone you up, trim you down and help keep your heart healthy. It saves on petrol and bus fares, and is better for the planet. And it’ll give you a bottom pert enough to balance a cup of tea on. No, it’s not the latest celebrity exercise craze. We’re talking about… walking.

From Grand Union Village, there are some excellent local footpaths through local parks and, of course, along the canal. For many local journeys, it can be quicker to walk all the way rather than driving or taking the bus, particularly at peak times.
There are several excellent leisure walks from local beauty spots.
