Monmouthshire Walking Festival

- Posted Saturday 28 March 2015 by Sharon Seymour

Walk with us in this centenary year of World War 1 when we discover the people and places that played their part in this Great War and World War 2.

With the beautiful backdrop of Monmouthshire experienced friendly walk leaders will take you to the sites of secret bunkers used by the resistance, to grave of the possibly the last combatant of World War 1 or even discover the vital part played by pigeons whilst walking the Wales Coast Path and much more.

The lengths of walks vary from 3 to a challenging 18 miles plus there is a torchlight walk for the whole family on Halloween with plenty of surprises in store.

Monmouthshire has over a 1,000 miles of footpaths crisscrossing the county and 7 long distance trails which take you through a landscape of stark contrasts: flat coastal wetlands of the Gwent Levels; picturesque mountains in the north, Brecon Beacons National Park; the Wye Valley an AONB and the peaceful rolling farmland of the Usk and Monnow valleys.

The county also boasts 3 Walkers are Welcome towns, Abergavenny, Chepstow and Monmouth and the village of Tintern. These towns are supported by businesses and local people who offer a warm welcome to walkers.
