Path maintenance, Short and easy walks

 

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 and Shropshire 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.

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 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 .

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.

 

Walk guides - see "Local walks" page.
