There were 48 walks over 5 days, with a mix of short and long walks each day. We had some family friendly walks and some themed walks - for example: foraging, geology, archaeology, local history and ancient churches. There were opportunities to learn new techniques or to polish up any rusty skills including map reading, navigation and nordic walking. New this year to the walking festival is a beginner's session on mountain walking - in heart of the beautiful Llanthony valley.
A special walk this year was the launch of the Hay-on-Wye Timbuktu Trail, so journey from Wales to West Africa and discover more about both towns. If you live locally or are visiting the area, you can still download the leaflet and follow the trail around Hay-on-Wye.
The dates for our 2014 Walking Festival are 9th-13th October so put them in your diary.
