Bishop’s Castle Walking Festival
1 – 25 May 2015
This year the Walking Festival information is available on the Town Hall website (under events) from where you can book your walks. The Festival will be held over three weeks, including the May Bank Holidays, giving plenty of time for walking and exploring the area and all it has to offer.
Bishop’s Castle lies in wonderful unspoilt countryside, surrounded by the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Festival will include short and medium walks as well as more challenging hill treks and walks with a special interest like map reading, wild flowers and the dawn chorus.
All Walking Festival walks are led by local volunteers and there is a £2 booking fee per person per walk; under sixteens are free. Our programme shows how the walks fit into the range of events and entertainment in and around the town.
