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.
Among exciting new walks for this year were Transcoco’s sustainability walk, Fitness Walks and Nordic tasters. The new walks, old favourites, plus our brilliant evening supper and quiz, are featured on the Festival Walks page. There were 5 free walks, including the family friendly Peacock Walk. Most walks start and finish at the same point, except Mindfulness and the GWR Brunel walks. Some walks sold out within a few days, via the Book Now buttons on the Festival Walks page. These buttons are only visible when booking is open. Tickets were also available at The Pound Arts Centre, Corsham.
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.
