Welcome to the Church Stretton Walking Festival website.
The dates for our 2020 Festival are: 18th - 21st June.
We are currently considering the Coronavirus situation and its effect on the festival. Watch this space for a decision soon.
Church Stretton Walking Festival is continuing to benefit from the injection of new energy and ideas provided by it's many volunteers.
Mainly made up of locals, the volunteers lead groups along favourite routes as well as lesser known ones and there's also a selection of themed walks, including the Map & Compass Course, the night time Stars in Your Skies Walk, and the Landscape Photography Walk. The festival attracts visitors from across the country as well as from further afield including Europe. As in previous years, we have the ever-popular Map & Compass courses on the weekend before the festival on Sunday 14th June so you can brush up on skills ready for the main festival.
Our thriving market town is always welcoming to visitors who can enjoy the varied local independent businesses whilst in the town or choose from one of the many excellent quality B&Bs to extend their stay. Why not stay and enjoy the local hospitality!
Walks are now finalised, details are on the Walks Page, and BOOKINGS ARE OPEN!
We look forward to seeing you in June!
Calling all keen walkers!
