Corsham for Walking
CORSHAM WALKING FESTIVAL 9-11 JUNE 2017
Thank you to everyone involved in the last Corsham Walking Festival. It was great to have so many walkers in Corsham enjoying everything that our town has to offer. We hoped you enjoyed it as much as we did - as you can see from the photographs, everyone seemed to have a great time.
The photos of the event on this page are by the Friends of Corsham Walking Festival. More photos can be seen on our Facebook page too. For up-to-date information on the next Festival, visit www.corshamwalkingfestival.org.uk.
The Corsham for Walking group, organisers of the Corsham Walking Festival, is grateful for financial support from Corsham Town Council, Wiltshire Council and all our other sponsors.
Corsham is a Wonderful Place to Walk
An historic market town, Corsham is surrounded by beautiful countryside.
Many of the Public Rights of Way are ancient, with some even dating back to Roman times, and are well-defined and walked regularly. The topography of the area allows for a variety of walks for all ages and abilities. As a result of all this walking potential,
Corsham has a number of active walking groups, and the groups’ members are eager to encourage walking in the area for local residents as well as visitors. (Click here for a list of our walking groups.)
Walkers can choose from many places of interest nearby, all of which are accessible on foot from Corsham. For example, it is possible to walk to Brunel’s famous Box Tunnel; the National Trust village of Lacock, and other National Trust properties; as well as Corsham Court and its parkland. The Visit Corsham website contains a wealth of resources on the history of the town and links to local attractions, as well as details of places to eat and drink and places to stay.
Walkers are Welcome
In March 2014, Corsham was awarded Walkers are Welcome status. This means that the town is not only a wonderful place to walk, it’s also welcoming to walkers, particularly after a long day’s wandering, with a great mix of pubs and restaurants ready to offer food and drink and a relaxing atmosphere. You can find out more about Walkers are Welcome on their website.
