MonDean Walking Festival 2015

26th June 2015

A brand new Walking Festival for 2015,

MonDean Walking Festival  27th june to 5th July 2015

This year we begin an exciting new venture teaming up with walkers in the Forest of Dean to create the MonDean Walking Festival. This will allow us to offer walks across the county of Monmouth from the Black Mountains through the Monnow and Usk valleys to the Wye Valley and to pick up the link on its opposite bank with the beautiful Forest of Dean - capturing the industrial and geographical links between the areas as well as their stunning scenery.

Our first weekend will offer the chance to climb the three peaks around Abergavenny in one day - the Blorenge, Sugar Loaf and Skirrid, while our final weekend sees an opportunity to follow the Three Castles Walk, Skenfrith, Whitecastle and Grosmont - again all in one day.

As well as these we have plans for a photography walk exploring the pastoral scenery of Monmouthshire; discovering the Forest of Dean section of the Gloucestershire Way from Parkend, deep in the Forest, to May Hill with its fabulous views over many counties; delving into the industrial past of the Forest of Dean while crossing the glorious woodland setting and visiting some stunning gardens connected via a delightful ramble.

These and many more are on offer during this year's festival week 27th June - 5th July 2015. Booking now available!

We look forward to welcoming old friends and new walkers to this year's brand new MonDean Walking Festival 2015
