Festival Dates: 17, 18 and 19 June 2016
The 2016 Festival was a great success thanks to the many participants and helpers who made it all possible. Many walks sold out and over 80 people enjoyed the fun quiz and delicious supper from Elior. With an amazing variety of walk themes such as Brunel’s railway, quarry tramways, geology, wildflowers, treasure hunt and dog walk, the Corsham Walking Festival goes from strength to strength becoming an essential part of the Corsham summer.
The Corsham Walking Festival started in 2014 as one day event organised by members of local walking groups. With help from Corsham Town Council and our other generous sponsors, it grew to a successful three day festival in 2015, opened by explorer David Hempleman-Adams, OBE, DL.
Corsham is a medieval market town on the fringe of the Cotswolds and at the heart of the Corsham Walking Festival, from where our walks explore the beautiful rolling north Wiltshire countryside on paths dating back to Roman times. You may see peacocks from Corsham Court wandering the town streets where Ross Poldark strolled while filming the popular Poldark TV drama series.
You will enjoy a warm welcome in our ‘Walkers are Welcome’ town, so do come and join in next time! Meanwhile see our Out and About. page for local walking groups and events. When taking part in the Festival please car share and use public transport when possible to help protect our wonderful north Wiltshire environment.
