Newtown, Powys, in the heart of mid-Wales on the banks of the River Severn, is set in some Britain’s most attractive countryside.
One of the best ways to enjoy this scenery is on foot. Walks to suit all ages and abilities are described in this website together with a detailed map of each route. All the walk descriptions and maps can be downloaded in printer-friendly format. Just click on the links on the left.
The walks are on public footpaths which lead through community woodland, nature reserve, riverside and canal paths, rolling hills and beautiful Montgomeryshire countryside. Routes are graded by length, time and how easy they are to do. Interesting features and historical facts are highlighted in the description but the main pleasure is simply in getting out there.
The walks start and end near the centre of Newtown. The town is linked with England and West Wales by bus and rail. You can round off your walk with shopping, tea, lunch or a pint.
