Chepstow is your starting point for walking in Wales and the Wye Valley
Our Annual Walking Weekend is taking place over 3 days from 12th April 2014
Yes Chepstow Walkers are Welcome WON the Social Enterprise Award at the Monmouthshire Business Awards ceremony held at Marriott St Pierre 11th October 2013. We had to wear posh frocks but would have preferred to be in walking boots rather than the heels but it was a fabulous evening!
The prize money will be re-invested to continue to provide better facilities for walkers and visitors in the Chepstow area.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us and we hope that you will continue to do so.
Chepstow, what makes it so special for walkers?
We have the ingredients: 4 long distance walks all starting either in or near Chepstow
The historic town of Chepstow with its magnificent castle lies at the foot of the Wye Valley on the border of Wales and England. A designated Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty it is often said that here was the birthplace of Tourism.
We are working and engaging with local businesses to provide the best possible facilities for walkers and visitors alike.
As from end of November 2013 lockers are available at Chepstow Tourist Information Centre. Chepstow is second only to Cardiff to offer this facility which at a small cost allows visitors and walkers to leave luggage and rucksacks in a safe place whilst they explore the town.
We are pleased to announce that
Chepstow Walkers are Welcome have won the bid to host the National Conference 'Get together' for the National Walkers are Welcome towns to be held in October 2014.
FIRST IN WALES TO HOST THIS EVENT!
