1st July 2021

Following the latest government announcement in relation to the pandemic, we are delighted to announce that we will be bringing you a highlights festival between the 4th and 12th of September. Whilst we will miss the delights of the springtime Gorge with the primroses, the wild garlic and the bluebells, September will still be a great month for walking and gives us an opportunity to explore the Gorge in all its glorious autumnal colours.

The autumn festival will not be our usual programme but will still feature a selection of walks of varying distances which will include some blasts from the past, as well as some of favourites. Some things will of course remain the same, our wonderful walk leaders, our passion for walking and fabulous routes with medals for completing 25, 50 or 100 miles.

We remain optimistic that we can run our full programme in 2022, commencing on Saturday 30th April for nine days.


We are very proud that we can offer our festival for free, due to the generosity of our supporters, the time and dedication of our wonderful walk and co-walk leaders and
the generosity of our walkers. If you would like to make a donation to the festival, you can now do so by bank transfer. Many thanks for your continued support.
