Walkers step it out at the 2024 Farnham Walking Festival

Farnham Walking Festival concluded on Sunday with four fascinating walks in and around Farnham.

In the first walk of the day, rangers from Alice Holt took walkers on a 90-minute guided walk through the ancient forest. In the afternoon, a group took a leisurely stroll around Rowhill Nature Reserve which was followed by a cream tea.

Departing from Farnham town centre, several walkers got to experience the beautiful countryside that can be seen from Upper, Middle and Lower Old Park. Another group chose to join the Guided Tour of Farnham and find out more about the town’s history. This guided tour takes place on the first Sunday of every month and costs £5 per person with all proceeds going to charity.

The festival which is organised by Farnham Town Council ran from 11 May to 2 June with participants enjoying over 30 diverse walks showcasing Farnham’s great outdoors.

Councillor Kika Mirylees, Lead Member for Community and Culture said: “From nature trails to historic walks, Farnham Walking Festival provided something for everyone. The range of walks and strong community turnout made the event truly special. We received lots of positive feedback and will build on this to make next year’s festival even better!”

Farnham Town Council has passed on its thanks to all the generous groups and leaders who organised walks and to Kidd Rapinet and Shaw Gibbs for sponsoring ‘Summer in Farnham’.

Walking can be enjoyed all year round in Farnham. Pamphlets for self-guided walks can be picked up from the Town Hall in South Street or walkers can download the Discover Farnham app for a series of walks with commentary. More information can be found on the walking page of Farnham Town Council’s website.
