18 May 2013 to 30 May 2013 : the 6th National Forest Walking Festival

The best way to see The National Forest is on foot, by taking part in the 100 walks on offer, most led by local experts. Walk with the National Trust’s national Ancient Tree expert; discover the smallest church in Leicestershire; walk from ‘California’ to ‘Calcutta’, discover a route of Mines, Mills & Murders; or sample an Ale Trail – and so much more! Or why not try Nordic Walking or Geo-caching? It’s a fantastic time of year to get out and enjoy the spring weather, so what are you waiting for?

Full programme available from Swadlincote Tourist Information Centre, Sharpe’s Pottery Museum, West Street, Swadlincote, Derbyshire, DE11 9DG. Tel: 01283 222848 or online at

Chesterfield Walking Festival

Chesterfield is famous for the ‘Crooked Spire' of its Parish Church. Legends surround it but the truth hinges on the weight of the lead tiles that cover the Spire’s wooden framework - all 32 tons of them! Chesterfield's other claim to fame is its open air market, one of the largest in the country. There are markets on Monday, Friday and Saturday all year, with a Flea Market every Thursday and a Farmers’ Market on the 2nd Thursday of every month. Sitting at the heart of some of the prettiest countryside in Britain, get the best of both worlds in Chesterfield. Come and see us soon!
