TETBURY WALKING FESTIVAL
The T&DFG hosted the first ever Tetbury Walking Festival over the weekend of 27th, 28th and 29th April 2018.
We hope to repeat the Festival annually.
There were 6 different walks all starting at the Tetbury Goods Shed just off Cirencester Road.They attracted 75 walkers, many new to the area.
The walks were led by experienced leaders from the Tetbury Footpath Group. We selected 6 walks which explored Tetbury and its surrounding countryside. These guided walks in 2018 were entirely free. Only registered assistance dogs were allowed on the walks.
No booking was necessary – walkers just turned up!
The Royal Oak pub is situated near the start and finish of each of the walks selling food and drink (http://theroyaloaktetbury.co.uk).
