Specialist themed walks, stories and scenic landscapes are a feature of the Festival programme. Some walks will involve local food and drink, practical craft sessions or chances to learn about the area’s wildlife, history and colourful characters.
All walks are accompanied by an experienced guide with knowledge of the area and an eagerness to share stories. Most are free of charge; some require a small fee which is clearly shown. To assist walk leaders with expected numbers, all walk places must be pre-booked via the website.
Annette Venters, Chilterns Conservation Board People & Society Officer, said: “The Chilterns is a rich source of inspiring stories about amazing people and places. Every year we uncover more, which we are delighted to share through the Walking Festival. We want people new to the Chilterns, or new to walking, to… have a wonderful day out, meet new people and explore new areas.”
Details of the walks, events and activities can be found on the website.
