The Hornbeam’s Walking Projects

The Hornbeam runs several FREE weekly walks in partnership with The Ramblers. Through our walks we are hoping to bring people within our communities together to discover and enjoy the green spaces that are so abundant around us in Waltham Forest.

Walking has been shown to have huge benefits for mental and physical wellbeing and sharing the experience with others is a great way to meet new people. 

Why not try it out? Our walks last around an hour and are for beginners. There’s no need to have any walking experience just make sure you have the right footwear 🙂

All our Walks are run by trained Walk Leaders who will make you feel welcome and answer any questions you have.

I’ve got knee arthritis. I found that the more I move, the better I feel. Walking is soul nourishment, because of the lovely people I meet and the beautiful environment I’m discovering. I feel like a new person.” – regular walker

“Walking has opened my eyes to a whole new world. I’ve discovered green spaces I didn’t know about and feel more connected to nature. It’s also been lovely to make new friends.” – regular walker
