Welcome to Walking Newtown
Newtown, Powys, in the heart of mid-Wales on the banks of the River Severn, is set in some of 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. 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.
If you are reasonably fit and enjoy working outdoors in the countryside come join us and help us to create more walks around Newtown and keep them open.
The Newtown Outdoor Festival (NOF) in June, 2022 included many guided walks led by Walking Newtown and was a great success. This will now be an annual event so join us every year on the first weekend of June.
Join us again on 3rd and 4th June 2023 for walking, scouting, fishing, cycling, canoeing, art and music events. Details of the walks that were guided by Walking Newtown can be found by clicking the NOF Walks Link on the left. Information on the whole festival and all the events will be available on the web site:
