Walking & Running

Walking is a great way to build exercise into your daily routine; whether you’re commuting or choosing to make local trips during the day on foot, rather than jumping in the car.

Walking to work (or even undertaking part of your journey on foot) can improve your health, make a positive contribution to the environment and save you money.

If you’re after a scenic lunchtime stroll, or perhaps a more energetic run, there’s Pugneys just over the road, or why not try out one of the informal routes along the River Calder, which you can get to from Peel Avenue.
