Further Information

Wiveliscombe was the first town in Somerset to achieve the “Walkers are Welcome” accolade in 2009. This national organisation was founded in 2007 and has been growing rapidly with now about 120 towns. The aim is to promote communities with good, well maintained walking facilities and thereby contribute to their economic, physical and mental well being.

In 2014 each community was asked to design and embroider a quilt block to represent their town. These have been assembled and will be displayed in Wiveliscombe House for the duration of the Festival. The Wiveliscombe block was expertly made by Ann Sharman and Alison Durnford and is easily recognisable by its Brewery Tower and typical rolling landscape.

Information about “Walkers are Welcome” and walking in Wiveliscombe will also be available in Wiveliscombe House.
