North Devon Autumn Walking Festival

Following the success of the annual North Devon Walking festival, usually held in May, the organisers have decided to run an additional Autumn walking festival from the 18th to the 21st September. 

There will be over 30 events with guided walks suited to all levels of ability. Several walks have a culinary focus with the availability of wild food becoming the main focus of the walks. The fungi forage is likley to be a very popular walk, and it provides an excellent oppourtunity to pick up some expert knowledge on a tricky subject. 

Wildlife fans have not been forgotten to with the return of the popular deer search walks led by an experienced Exmoor Park Ranger. There is also the chance to explore some areas of private land not normally open to the public. The guided tour of the grounds of Hartland Abbey is sure to be a highlight of the festival and is a must for all those Jane Austen fans as a cottage within the grounds was used as a location for the BBC Sense & Sensibility adaptation. 

All walks should be booked in advanced with ticket prices at around £5. For more information visit www.walkingnorthdevon.co.uk.
