The inaugural Monmouthshire Walking Festival
may be an ideal opportunity for fans of the outdoors to put their walking gear
to use this autumn.
Specialist walks led by expert guides and a chance to taste some local food are among the attractions on offer at the event in south-west Wales, which got underway on Friday (October 22nd) and runs until October 31st.
A total of 32 walks are on offer over the course of the festival
- over three per day - and organisers have noted that undertaking one per day "will give you a real taste of Monmouthshire".
Among the areas taken in by the routes are Chepstow, the Wye Valley, Monmouth, the Black Mountains and Abergavenny.
In addition, there are a number of local attractions to visit in the area, including Tintern Abbey, Raglan Castle, White Castle and Parva Farm Vineyard, which is the oldest commercial farmyard in Wales and features a farm shop.
