Walking regularly can help you stay healthy and live longer, keep happy, enjoy time with friends and family, learn more about your local area, meet other people, make new friends and look after the environment. And almost everyone can do it, anywhere and at any time, for free.

We work to promote walking for pleasure, health, leisure and transport to everyone, of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, in towns and cities as well as in the countryside. We want Britain to be a place where people choose to go walking, contributing to their health and wellbeing and supporting a more sustainable way of life.

Canal and River Trust

Walking in the great outdoors can make you feel better both physically and mentally. Our 2,000 miles of canal towpaths provide largely flat, traffic-free walking routes, taking you from the inner city right into the heart of the countryside. Take a waterside walk and feel the difference. The nearest canal to Askern is located at Kirkhouse Green. Find out more about canal and river walks.
