Festival Dates: 17, 18 and 19 June 2016
The 2016 Festival was a great success due to the enthusiasm of over 400 walkers and volunteers – thank you all. 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 first Corsham Walking Festival in 2014 was one day event organised by members of local walking groups. With help from Corsham Town Council and our generous supporters, it has grown to a three day festival popular with walkers and those new to walking.
Corsham is a historic market town located on the fringe of the Cotswolds and at the heart of the Corsham Walking Festival. From here our walks explore beautiful rolling countryside on paths dating back to Roman times. The town is a delightful place to visit – a peaceful retreat from the bustle of nearby Bath and Chippenham. Corsham Court’s peacocks wander the streets where Ross Poldark strolled during filming of the popular Poldark TV drama series.
A warm welcome awaits you in our ‘Walkers are Welcome’ accredited town, so do come and join in next time! Meanwhile see our Out and About page for local walking groups and events. Please car share or use public transport to protect our north Wiltshire environment.
