Kington Walks Spring Weekend

Friday to Sunday, April 12th - 14th 2019

Kington sits on the border between the green and pleasant land of Herefordshire, famous for apples, beef and beer, and the wild and beautiful uplands of Wales. It makes it the perfect base for everyone interested in walking, from strenuous hill walking to leisurely strolls along gentle river valleys.

Following the success  of our first Spring Weekend last year we are once again inviting all keen walkers to join us for another weekend of spectacular walking with sublime views, welcoming pubs, good food, and the great company of fellow walkers.

More long-distance paths converge on Kington than almost anywhere else in the UK. This Spring we are helping to celebrate one of those long distance paths and the 50th anniversary of the Offa's Dyke Association.

The Offa’s Dyke Association 1969 - 2019

The Offa’s Dyke Association (ODA) charity was established in 1969, with the aim ‘to promote the conservation, improvement and better knowledge of the Welsh border region along Offa’s Dyke and the National Footpath’. The work of the ODA includes interpretive educational displays at the Offa’s Dyke Centre in Knighton, partnering with Cadw and Historic England in a project to develop a Conservation Management Plan for the Dyke, and also managing its own Conservation Fund to support the cost of projects along both the Dyke and National Trail.

Kington Walks as a member of the ODA is pleased to support the 50th year celebrations with a selection of walks along the Trail during the Spring Weekend. More information about the ODA and details of the celebration walks are here.

In addition to the ODA walks the programme includes a number of walks of varying grades and interests and, with the support of Red Kite Fostering, the ever popular Eight Peaks Challenge. On Saturday evening, walkers and non-walkers alike can enjoy a convivial evening in the Market Hall where once again Dave and Helen Pickersgill of Weobley Ash will be hosting a Casserole Evening and the Swan Brewery will be supplying the bar.  

Do come and join us for the weekend and enjoy all that the little town of Kington has to offer.
