H&W Earth Heritage Trust 25th Anniversary Sponsored Walks 2021
25 Years, 25 Miles, 25 Weeks
Herefordshire and Worcestershire Earth Heritage Trust is 25 years old this year!
To celebrate 25 years, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Earth Heritage Trust are organising a choice of sponsored walks from July to September to boost mood, get everyone out in the fresh air and help to support the Trust’s dedicated work to protect, conserve and improve earth heritage across the two counties.
Everyone is welcome and can choose how they wish to take part, you can:
- Join a guided walk with a walk leader, choosing your destination from the programme of 12 walks (listed below)
- Walk at your own pace at a time to suit you, choosing your own route from our 26 Explore Guide routes or one of the 17 sections of the Geopark Way, our landscape and heritage trail.
- Choose when your 25 weeks begin, if 25 miles is a bit much, try 25 kilometres instead.
