Welcome to the 5th Corsham Walking Festival – a summer celebration of walking, local heritage and the countryside. The annual festival is organised by volunteers from the local walking community and made possible by our generous sponsors. With 27 walks led by experienced leaders, 2018 was our biggest yet! The wide range of distances and themes, provided something for everyone to enjoy.
Exciting new walks for this year included Transcoco’s sustainability walk, fitness walks and Nordic tasters. New walks, old favourites, and our brilliant evening supper and quiz, are shown on the Festival Walks page. There were also 5 free walks, including the family friendly Peacock Walk. Some events sold out within a few days via Book Now buttons on the Festival Walks page, which are visible when booking is open. Tickets were also available at The Pound Arts Centre.
Corsham is an historic market town set in wonderful walking country beside the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town’s old limestone buildings and stone tiled roofs have appeared in many film and TV productions. Although close to busy Bath and Chippenham, peacocks often wander the town’s quiet streets.
Please use public transport – the X31 bus, D3 bus to Northey Arms, Box or car share to help protect our beautiful North Wiltshire environment. A warm welcome awaits you in our Walkers are Welcome accredited town. See the Out and About page for local walks throughout the year or sign up to our Newsletter.
