Group name: East Radnor
This group is a part of Powys Area.
Our activities include:
Path maintenance, Short and easy walks
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.
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 walk every Wednesday and alternate Saturdays, generally with Moderate walks 6-10 miles. We also do short walks on one Tuesday and one Thursday each month. Look at our programme for details. Visitors always made welcome!
Our current walks programmes are here: Wednesdays March-April and Wednesdays May-June and Saturdays March-June
We publish these guides to local walks. Enjoy!
