Walking is a fantastic way to get – and stay – healthy!

One of the reasons health experts give walking rave reviews is because it’s a ‘lifestyle exercise’. That means you can usually make time for it without too much of a change to your daily routine. Walking to work, to the shops, or the final mile from the bus stop may take a little more time, but it’s certainly not the big project that signing up for a gym (and the time or cost to get there) can be.

To the southwest of the development, along Quernmore Road heading on to East Road, residents are within walking distance of Lancaster City Centre. The centre is well served by a mixture of boutique shops, high street stores and eateries including a large Sainsbury Superstore and St Nicholas Arcade. Also within a convenient walking distance, for those wishing to make the journey to school on foot, are a selection of primary schools and high schools.

Whilst walking will already therefore be a practical option for many local trips, Story Homes have made a sizeable financial contribution to improve walking and cycle links between the development and Derwent Road to the west, making local journeys on foot more attractive and safe.
