Today marks the beginning of the Festival of Winter Walks, a celebration held by the Ramblers to get more people out into the fresh air and find some beautiful winter landscapes. By getting out into the local area, the Ramblers hope that the British public will be able to come together as a community and share time this season in a relaxing and healthy way.
While following the trails suggested by the Ramblers will offer some scenic views, there are plenty of wonderful wanders you can take in and around campus. On a frosty winter's morning, a walk across Harper Adams gives you the chance to see how wonderful this area is, as captured by you across social media. We'd love for you to share your walking photos with us, tagging us @harperadamsuni on Instagram and Twitter and using the #walkinwinter on your posts.
Want to venture on walks further afield? You can find lots to do and see in our neighbouring towns. Shrewsbury, the county town of Shropshire, has walks along the River Severn, paths around The Quarry, and routes through Shrewsbury Castle. Stafford boasts Trentham Estate's gardens as well as trails through Cannock Chase. Along with this, Telford has its town park and, slightly further out from the centre of the new town, is the Ironbridge Gorge, where you can walk through the World Heritage Site. All offer scenic walks and places of interest to visit over the festive season.
To find out more about the surrounding towns, you can see our Out and About page to discover the area around campus.
