Preparation for this WALK has raised some important H&S questions


    WALKCHESTER wishes our many Tourists an enjoyable, safe walk, with useful signage 

    All Towns and Cities have a duty-of-care to all pedestrians & wheelchair users

    All classes of able-bodied and disabled require smooth, safe walking surface

    A regular risk assessment of all pathways, access, egress, length of walk marked, would be helpful

    All humans require access to drinking water, food and toilets, (not forgetting pets)

    All disabled require good maps showing car-parking close to access routes

    All public places to have high H&S standards. Remove cobble-stones 

    or flag-stones, wider pavements for motorized wheelchairs
