Based in our hometown, the festival provides the opportunity for a fantastic break; combining day time walks led by knowledgeable guides, with evening talks from popular and emerging authors.
VISIT TO ALTBERG FACTORY AND WALK TO WILLANCE’S LEAP
Meet at the Altberg factory on 24th September at 9.30am and walk to Willance’s Leap, a 6 mile walk. A traditional event for the first day of the Festival. See how the boots are designed and made: for walking, the army, police and motorcycling. There’s time for a cup of tea and a look around the factory shop before heading off to Willance’s Leap, and to hear the famous legend of Robert Willance’s tragic fall and the horse who saved his life.
