In 2015 distington Big Local created a circular Health-walk, with the advice of a local doctor and the Borough Councils Rural Access Officer.
The walk is only a gentle kilometre in length and can be used as a regular part of keeping mobile and perhaps as a measure of how you are shaping up.
The walk is accessed from outside the Parish Church on the corner of Barfs Road and Church Road and is well signposted from there.
Part of the walk takes in the Cycle path which skirts around the village. In creating the walk the access to the cycle path was also improved. It is hoped to install benches in due course.
