New winter walks at Norfolk Arms, Ringinglow...
For twice a week over the last 5 years The Norfolk Arms at Ringinglow have been arranging walks for their customers on the edge of the Peak District.
These have included 8-10 mile Sunday walks, 4-5 mile morning walks all year round, and 3 mile sunset walks in Summer. Now with the onset of darker nights, whereas the evening walks would no longer normally have been taking place, regular walkers at the pub have asked if they can be carried on through the winter, weather permitting!
So starting from Tuesday 12th of this month, torch walks will take place from the pub on good local paths, in areas such as Houndkirk, Burbage, Limb Valley and Redmires. The walks will take around 90 minutes, and people signing up for them will enjoy hot drinks at the pub before and after the walks, and also a light meal from the Norfolk Arms special Walking Group menu on their return. All this for £10!
The benefits of walking are numerous, but health experts say that taking this type of exercise in Winter can provide the following additional benefits:-
It gets people out of the house, especially those who live on their own
It gives people a sense of achievement
It improves the mental health of people who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder
Being part of a group gives a feeling of belonging
It helps to keep fitness levels up over the winter months.
