1 Mins read

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council is celebrating the news that two new quality walking routes are now being included in a prestigious walking guide.

The Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough, Councillor Billy Ashe said: “The Council is keen for residents to get outdoors, get healthy and enjoy our numerous fantastic open spaces.

“It is therefore very encouraging that two new routes have been added to the Walk NI guide – which is the definitive reference for walking in Northern Ireland on www.walkNI.com

Cllr Ashe concluded: “With over 20 quality walks listed throughout the Borough, there has never been a better time to get outdoors and get walking.”

Diane Crookes, Development Officer, Outdoor Recreation NI, added: “We are delighted to be able to add the walking trails at Diamond Jubilee Wood, Whitehead and Bashfordsland Wood and Oakfield Glen, Carrickfergus to our ever expanding list of quality walking routes throughout Northern Ireland on www.WalkNI.com

“Walking is the perfect exercise; it is affordable, accessible to all, low risk and low impact.  It has been scientifically proven that walking helps to reduce cholesterol, heart disease, strokes, diabetes and more. 

“Besides the many physical benefits it also generates a ‘feel good factor’, all of which helps support positive mental health. 

“With such undeniable benefits to walking it is fantastic to be able to promote these two new walks which are the perfect way for locals and visitors alike to enjoy the countryside and connect with nature.”
