  • beautiful in the Chilterns

We have two walking groups, both now well established.

Chiltern Tremblers

Tremblers walks are 2 to 3 miles long and usually start at 10.30 on the first Tuesday of the month.  Look out for occasional afternoon starts though.

Walks are stile-free and fairly flat.  Many have a “half-way option” for a shorter walk (check individual walk details). If you choose the half-way option, you must contact us in advance so that arrangements can be made for transport.

Chiltern Striders

Striders walks are longer, typically 6 to 7 miles and start on occasional Wednesday mornings at 09.30 with lunch at 12.45 (BUT check walk details for variations on the day).  There may be stiles and gradients.

Walking GroupBoth Groups

Both Tremblers and Striders walks are very sociable and end at a pub or cafe for lunch (supper following occasional afternoon walks). Family, friends and dogs are always welcome.  Non-walkers are welcome to join us for lunch.

The walk leader will walk whatever the weather.

Please note that, particularly during the winter months, the scheduled walk might need to be changed because of mud, wind, water etc.

Open for everyone

You don’t have to be a member of Parkinson’s UK to come to our walking groups – anyone in our area affected by Parkinson’s (including partners and carers) is welcome.

Forthcoming walks

Final details of walks are confirmed by email a few days beforehand to all who have expressed an interest. We also include walk details on our calendar when they are available.
