The Chesterfield Area Walking Festival boasts two weeks of guided walking activities taking in the beautiful Chesterfield landscape.
From the 12th – 20th May 2012, you can choose from over 55 walks, many of them free of charge.
Enjoy the Chesterfield area on foot, discovering pretty villages, exploring beautiful bluebell woods or treading the Cuckoo Way alongside the ‘Haunted Canal’.
Take in some history as you follow in Elizabeth Shrewsbury’s footsteps around Hardwick, get up with the birds to hear the dawn chorus or follow the Chesterfield Murder Walk – if you dare!
Looking for a challenge? Try the Chesterfield Round Walk, a 34 mile trek through countryside surrounding the town. Or brave the 20 mile Beast of Bolsover.
If that’s all too much, try the Five Circular Walks – five walks of around 10 miles each through a variety of countryside.
Most walks are free so there’s no excuse not to join in, and every excuse to have a pint at the end of several of them. All are led by a fully trained guide who knows the history, wildlife and the best countryside to walk through (as well as the best pubs to visit) in the beautiful Chesterfield landscape.
The Chesterfield Area Walking Festival website lists the events daily with clear information about facilities, suitability and booking details.
