Thank you for making the 2017 Corsham Walking Festival so brilliant – most events sold out! Volunteers, sponsors and hundreds of walkers from near and far joined in. You can see walkers’ photos on the Galleries page.
Stephanie Millward MBE, double gold paralympic swimming medallist, opened the 4th Corsham Walking Festival, seeing off the first walk, Hartham Unwrapped, from Springfield Community Campus.
The 2017 expanded programme included old favourites plus new adventures, all delivered by local volunteers. The evening event with a fun quiz, great prizes and delicious supper, included live music and a short film from local students. Corsham Walking Festival has an amazing variety of walk themes such as Brunel’s railway, quarry tramways, geology, wildflowers, and treasure hunt. New for this year was the Corsham Quest – a hunt for the whole family; a walk to Hartham Park and two longer walks.
Corsham is an historic market town on the fringe of the Cotswolds and at the heart of the Corsham Walking Festival, from where we walk on ancient paths exploring beautiful views and rolling countryside. The town, with its wandering peacocks, offers a peaceful retreat from nearby Bath and Chippenham, via the X31 bus.
