With thanks to our volunteers who suggest, lead and marshal at our walking events, which are all designed to help you rediscover this beautiful area.

If you would like to help design new walks and create new routes for future ChalkeEscape Walking Festivals – if you have a favourite walk you are willing to share, or if you would like to join our Route Checkers Team to check and report back on one of our existing routes, please get in touch with Rachel – or call her on 07880 488410.
