High Weald

We are delighted to offer 50 curated self-guided walk routes from every corner of the High Weald during September, our walks festival month.

HWWF promo image 2020 self guided The Festival team - led by ourselves and local Ramblers groups - have selected routes that offer an alternative to the cancelled High Weald Walking Festival. They are a fantastic opportunity to get off the beaten track, discover some hidden gems and explore our beautiful landscape safely, responsibly and at your own pace. Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or a lockdown newbie, there’s something for everyone.

How will it work?

  1. Visit the Festival website - a list and interactive map showing the location and length of the 50 walks is available NOW and replaces our usual Festival brochure.
  2. The walking route pdfs will be avaiable to download here from early September. They include clear directions and a map, and can be printed in A4 on a home printer. They’ll only be available for one month and will disappear on 1 October, so don’t miss out!
  3. Make sure you’re signed up to the Festival mailing list for details of of new bonus walks as they are released throughout the month, weekly High Weald 'I-Spys' to spot while you're out walking and other updates.
  4. Let us know how you’re getting on; share your photos and updates when you’re out and about using #highwealdwalks.

We would like as many people as possible to join in. Please help us promote the self-guided routes by sharing the news with friends and family who may be interested in taking part.

Happy Walking!
