Travel on Foot

Walking is an easy way to stay healthy and even easier to fit into your lifestyle

You can walk almost anywhere, so by grabbing your shoes and heading out, you’ll see benefits including:

  • Improved health benefits – Just 30 minutes of walking a day can increase your heart and lung fitness.
  • A fitter body – Walking is a low impact exercise, good for your joints and alleviating joint pain, and even better for feeling fitter and improving muscles.
  • Reduced expenditure – Walking is free and reduces your spending on petrol.
  • New social opportunities – You don’t need to sit down to catch up with friends or family, try going for a walk with them instead.

There are a number of local amenities that are within approximate 30-minute walk from your new home and these include:

  • Kirklevington Primary School
  • The Crown Hotel
