Plans are under way to get Corsham walking this summer, with the launch of the town’s first Walking Festival.

Taking place on June 28, the festival will see a number of walks set up in and around the town, to showcase the views of the area.

Sandra Cholerton, volunteer at the town’s Tourist Information Centre, said: “It’s a one-day trial to see if it works, then we will look at doing it again.

“There are walks out towards Colerne, Broughton Gifford and Lacock, and a local heritage walk around the town.

“There are eight altogether, of various difficulties and lengths, so hopefully it will attract a diverse number of people.

“We’re trying to set up Corsham as a Walkers are Welcome town, and this could really get us on the walking map.”

Plans for the festival are still being finalised, but for more information or to get involved visit
