For the 6th year the annual Kington Walking Festival 2017, will take place in September.
The historic drovers’ town of Kington is nestled below Hergest Ridge and stands alone, from a walking perspective, and as a result, has more long-distance paths converging on the town than almost anywhere else in the UK.
The Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail, the Herefordshire Trail, Mortimer Trail from Ludlow, and the Wyche Way from Broadway all pass through (or start/finish) in the town.
The Kington Walking Festival, which this year takes place from September 21 until 24, is the primary annual event of the Kington Walks charity and this year the programme is bigger and better than ever with over 40 walks.
New this year is a two day circular walk from Clun with an overnight stay in Bishops Castle and an event for the less able bodied called ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’. In addition to the ever popular Eight Peaks Challenge with the support of Red Kite Fostering, the festival introduces the Three Peaks Challenge.
Whether you fancy an amble around the mills and weirs of the town, a ramble to the pub (or two, or even three) or the challenge of the 30 mile Mortimer Trail over two days, there will be something for all walkers.
