Walking Newtown

Source: Welcome to Walking Newtown

Newtown, Powys, in the heart of mid-Wales on the banks of the River Severn, is set in some Britain’s most attractive countryside.

One of the best ways to enjoy this scenery is on foot. A group of people who like walking decided to find circular walks and make a guide to a number of walks around Newtown. Walks to suit all ages and abilities are described in this website together with a detailed map of each route.

The walks are on public footpaths which lead through community woodland, nature reserve, riverside and canal paths, rolling hills and beautiful Montgomeryshire countryside. Routes are graded by length, time and how easy they are to do. Interesting features and historical facts are highlighted in the description but the main pleasure is simply in getting out there.
