The walk takes you up and down footpaths, tracks and quiet lanes through unspoilt countryside with fine views all around.
There may well be stiles, steep hills and rough tracks to navigate! And each year we explore a different route around Ludlow and the wonderful surrounding countryside.
During your journey, you make several stops for refreshment. At each, of which, you will partake of a course of a meal based mostly on the local produce of Ludlow and across the Welsh Marches. Your food will be washed down with local real ale, or traditional local perry or cider, or other drink with a local connection. You will also be given some local bottled water.
The event, now in its eighteenth year, is based on a similar and very successful event organised by our winemaking friends in Ludlow's twin town of San Pietro in Cariano, near Verona in Italy - the home of Valpolicella. It is organised and ran by the Ludlow Marches Food & Drink Festival Team.
Starts: Fri, 11th September 2020
Ends: Sun, 13th September 2020

It's been going for over 20 years now, and it's all about showcasing, tasting and enjoying the superb food and drink made and supplied by small-scale, high-quality independent producers from Ludlow and the Welsh Marches (the English-Welsh border country). It's all locally produced, with a few special exceptions, and there is a fantastic festival spirit pervading the town throughout the three days of the festival.
