Put those dates into your diary today as we start planning the programme for next year’s walking festival. See some of the early walks in below.




The festival opens on Saturday 13th 2015 with an exploration of Hereford’s Edgelands, crossing the River Wye on the new Greenway Bridge to climb to the summit of Dinedor Hill and return via the graceful Victoria Bridge. 

Ideas from ‘Edgelands’ by Paul Farley & Michael Symoons Roberts will be used on the walk. 



On Sunday, take advantage of a unique half day’s training using map and compass led by Graham ‘Sven’ Hassall of Summit Mountaineering and put it into practice orienteering on the beautiful trails, forests and slopes surrounding Symonds Yat Rock. 


Polish up your skills during the rest of the festival.


Join Herefordshire historian, Heather Hurley, on the Brockhampton Post Walk, newly created & beautifully carved, leading through a delightful valley and up to Capler Camp for the splendid views.
Explore the Olchon Valley locations described by Odie Robie in ‘Of Wet and Of Wildness’ her account of life there in the post war years.    Discover the Hay Ho! Sunday bus and enjoy the linear walk from Dorstone to Hay-on-Wye, via Vagar Hill, Cefn Hill, Newhouse Wood and Cusop Dingle - you might meet the horses.  There’s even time for tea before the return bus journey.   Drop further down the western edge of Herefordshire for a 6 mile circular walk from Skenfrith.

And that’s just for starters!

Alternatively, have a look at the Herefordshire Ramblers Autumn Programme for walks county wide and over the borders.  All are welcome.
