Walking in East Radnor
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.
Mid Wales is often overlooked but has amazing walking areas in the hills, where you may walk all day and not meet anyone. The hills are up to about 600m with much country about 400m. The rivers define the geography, with the Teme and the tributaries of the Wye. We are near the more popular hills of south Shropshire (the Clees; Long Mynd etc) and Herefordshire (Hay Bluff and Black Mountains etc).
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.
We walk every Wednesday and some Saturdays, generally with Moderate walks 6-9 miles, and short walks on some Tuesdays and Thursdays. Visitors always made welcome!
The other Saturdays there are walks led by our neighbours, the Four Wells group.
Please note that unfortunately, we are not able to allow dogs on our walks, unless the description specifically says they are allowed.
We are amazingly well supported by our members leading all our walks. New members will get plenty of help from our experienced leaders to start leading, so please get in touch and we hope to walk with you soon.
The Group provides several local walk guides, available from our group contact as documents or downloadable files:
Knighton circular walks (and Kinsley wood routes) are available via the Group contact.
Walks you will enjoy - these 18 walks have been available from various local centres and by mail for many years, now in its 3rd edition.
If you would like a full set, pocket sized (approx 200x90mm), on waterproof paper, in a plastic wallet, then use the contact on Group page. Note that some walks have changed since printing and updated files are available on request to the contact. Also GPX files are available via the Group contact.
