Local Walks in Wokingham Without
Walking and cycling are a great way to keep active. Getting out walking or cycling burns calories, gets your heart pumping and works your legs and abs. It can also lift your mood, put a smile on your face and improve your general health and wellbeing.
The parish council recognises the importance of maintaining usable routes, and is currently working on a joint project with Wokingham Borough Council to improve local walking and cycling routes in and across the parish. The parish council is also working to raise awareness of local walking routes, and has recently agreed to support the national Slow Ways initiative, to map connecting routes between villages and local amenities.

We’d love to hear your feedback on this walking leaflet.
The first stage of improvements to Byway 28 (running from Hatch Ride up through the Gorrick woodland and towards Wokingham town centre) was completed in October 2020. This improved the surface on the section from Nine Mile Ride to Heathlands Road.
The second section of the byway, running from Queens Ride to Nine Mile Ride, was upgraded in April 2022
Improvements to the third, longer section, from Heathlands Road through the Gorrick Woodland towards the railway line, are now underway and should be completed by the early summer of 2022.
