40 self-guided walking routes available to download during September – free of charge
Since making the tough decision to cancel this year’s Festival, the team has been working on a plan to help you explore the beautiful High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty safely, and at your own pace.
We’ve worked with a host of organisations and partners to gather a collection of fantastic self-guided walking routes from every corner of this beautiful landscape, including some real hidden gems. Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or a lockdown newbie, there’s something for everyone.
How will it work?
- First, make sure you’re signed up to our mailing list as this will be our main way of letting you know when new walks are released.
- A list of the available walks and an interactive map will be published on the Festival website from early August, so you can start planning; this will replace our usual Festival brochure.
- The walking guides will available to download at www.highwealdwalks.org in pdf format from the beginning of September. They will include clear directions and a map, and can be easily printed in A4 size on a home printer. They’ll only be available for one month and will come down on 1 October, so don’t miss out!
- Let us know how you’re getting on; share your photos and updates when you’re out and about using #highwealdwalks.
The walking guides will also include advice on exploring the countryside safely, in line with the latest government COVID-19 advice.
