Group name: East Radnor

This group is a part of Powys Area.

Telephone:
01547 530120
Our activities include:
Path maintenance, Short and easy walks

Walks on Wednesday 18th March and Thursday 19th are CANCELLED (due to corona virus risk).

Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.

Our area

We are a very friendly Group, covering the Knighton and Presteigne area of Powys (though parts of both towns are in England!), with members in Herefordshire also. We have the Offa's Dyke Centre in Knighton (the route passes through the town). Knighton is also the start of Glyndwr's Way and the new Heart of Wales Line Trail passes through our area also.

We also have a team of volunteers, working for the County Rights of Way department, helping to keep paths open by installing gates, bridges, etc. and doing clearance work, surveys and anything else needed.

Our walks

We walk every Wednesday and alternate Saturdays, generally with Moderate walks 6-10 miles, and also short walks on some Tuesdays and Thursdays each month. Visitors always made welcome!

The other Saturdays there are walks led by our neighbours the  4 wells group and the joint programme is here.

Please note that we do not allow dogs on our walks, unless the description specificaly says they are.

We are amazingly well supported by our members leading all our walks. To help potential leaders we publish some notes on how we like to do our walks: leaders advice and leaders notes

Other activities

Every January we have a group dinner as a way to encourage members to come to our AGM (by having the dinner follow a very brief AGM)! This year it was at the Cider Barn restaurant near Pembridge and was very successful - brief AGM and lovely meal.

In June 2020 we are having an away weekend in Pembrokeshire. The walking there is so delightful but too far for day walks that we thought our friends would like this opportunity to walk the National Park. Details from our secretary.

Walk guides - see "Local walks" page.
