We invite you to attend Whitchurch's 4th Annual Walking Festival.
It continues to build upon the Walkers are Welcome status. This prestigious accolade was awarded to Whitchurch in 2012.
The town of Mediolanum (meaning "The place in the mid plain") was established in about 70AD by the Romans on the site of modern day Whitchurch. Built on a low hill, Whitchurch provided a perfect location on a major Roman route, half way between Chester (Deva) and Wroxeter (Viroconium). This is still true for today's walkers. The Shropshire Way now runs through the town where it joins the Sandstone Trailthrough the Whitchurch Waterway Country Parkand along the Llangollen Canal to Grindley Brook, just over a mile north of Whitchurch. Here the routes intersect with the Maelor Way, Marches Way and the South Cheshire Way. From Whitchurch there is a good range of walking opportunities with canal walks or walks around the internationally importantMeres and Mosses for those who like it flat. For those who prefer hill walks there is the nearby Bickerton or Peckforton Hills, to the north, or Grinshill and Haughmond Hill to the south.
We will be providing 3 days of walking opportunities and activities that will provide you with the opportunity to explore Whitchurch and the surrounding countryside. An opportunity to learn and experience urban sketching and some great evening activities/entertainment.
Please select from above to find what activities are available on each day.
