View all events

Clare is beautifully situated in the Upper Stour Valley and there are literally dozens of footpaths and bridleways waiting to be explored, as well as a unique range of heritage assets, including the ruins of a Norman castle, Victorian railway buildings, a Wool Church, a country park and the River Stour.

NEW BOOK – Fifteen walks around Clare

The book contains revised versions of the original six walks, as well as four short walks and four ‘compass’ walks (linear walks north, east, west and south). The final walk is a new 50 mile ‘Wool Towns Walk’ that has been developed by Sudbury Ramblers following Clare Walkers pitching the idea to them: don’t worry – it has been divided into 8 manageable sections! The book also contains information about the Castle, Park and Town, and a timeline of Clare’s history since 1066.

Working in partnership

Clare Walkers works in partnership with several other organisations to deliver a range of walking experiences for residents and visitors alike.
