Welcome to Bollington’s 9th Walking Festival! Again, we have a great programme of walks and social events. This year we have planned around 40 walks to cover all abilities and age ranges.

For 2018 we are pleased to announce that we have extended the variety of walks available, maintain our partnerships with local walking groups and increased the number of local businesses involved. Walkers Are Welcome continues to extend a hand of friendship to all who visit Bollington.

All the walks can be found hereĀ (or click Walks above for the calendar) plus the team are in the middle of distributing the leaflets around the area and beyond. You can grab and print your own leaflet by clicking on the leaflet picture. Forthcoming walks can be found here.

Without their help and support!

The Bollington Walking Festival was initiated by the Destination Bollington Forum and is organised by the Bridgend Centre and volunteers.

We would like to thank all of those who have contributed to the programme, and Bollington Town Council for their grant which makes all this financially possible.

A big thank you also to the Walking Festival volunteers for all their support before, during and after the festival.
