Take a walk with us along the Wealdway without donning your boots!   Here are photos from some of the 26 Wealdway40 walks which took place along the Wealdway in September 2021 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the opening of the Wealdway. Thanks to all the walking groups who embraced the Wealdway40 festival (click here for more details) and planned such a variety of walks for all to enjoy.
