Abstract

In this paper, a case is made for the greater promotion of regular cardiovascular exercise in the North West through the potential of a (hitherto under-utilised) resource that North Lancashire and Cumbria have in abundance; rural environments. Drawing upon extant literature and indicative data from pilot research from a recent community conservation initiative in Lancaster, it is argued that the embedded activities can encourage precisely the kinds of optimal, affordable and sustainable exercise that could play an important role in the region’s cardiovascular health.
