Holmfirth Walking Festival a big hit!
Holmfirth Walkers Are Welcome staged their annual walking festival last weekend. Over 200 participants took part in a huge variety of activities. In all there were 7 walks over the weekend, all free, ranging from story walks to local history trails. Evening events included presentations by walking guide authors and films on a walking theme. The weather was kind, despite a poor forecast, and the event showcased their beautiful valley. They have a great team of experienced and willing walk leaders who give up their time to plan and lead walks all through the year. If you missed the festival watch out on Facebook for their programme of Sunday walks.
