A gentle summer’s walk with Swindon and Gloucestershire Mind Walking Group. Taking a bus from Fleming Way in Swindon to start the walk at Coate Water. We walk along the lake and through woodland, across the boundary into the North Wessex Downs and along part of the old Swindon to Marlborough Railway path to Chiseldon. There will be a café stop in Chiseldon before getting a bus back.

When we combine the benefits of walking with mindfulness, we can experience improvements to psychological and physiological wellbeing. Join us in this activity of walking as a mindfulness practice to help you become more aware of the sensations in your body. By tuning into your environment and the sensations in your body as you walk, it can help you to focus on the present moment.

Immerse yourself in the beautiful nature around you and discover nature anew – what you can see, hear, feel and learn about!

To join this walk you will need to be currently accessing S&G Mind services. The walking group meet every Thursday to explore Swindon and the local area by foot, walking at the pace of the slowest walker and stopping for refreshments.
