Newtown Outdoor Festival 2020

Newtown, Powys, in the heart of mid-Wales on the banks of the River Severn, is set in some Britain’s most attractive countryside.

The AGM on Wednesday, 15th April, has been cancelled and replaced with an EGM. If you are interested in joining Walking Newtown please email the secretary to obtain the documents and be added to the mailing list.

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. Click on The Walks button on the left to download printable descriptions and maps.

The walks are on Public Rights of Way passing through community woodlands, nature reserves, riverside footpaths, canal tow-paths, and rolling hills in the 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 walk descriptions but the main pleasure is simply in getting out there.

The walks start and end near the centre of Newtown. The town has good bus and rail links to other towns and cities. Your walk can be rounded off with shopping, tea, lunch or a pint. The OS maps that cover these walks are OS Explorer Map 214 - Llanidloes & Newtown & OS Explorer Map 215 - Newtown & Machynlleth.

The Newtown Outdoor Festival in June, 2020 has been cancelled as a result of the coronavirus.  We hope to see you on the first weekend of June, 2021, COVID-19 permitting.
