Herefordshire Archaeology's Historic Landscape Walks Programme 2020

Please note: In response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, in accordance with government guidance and in the interest of public safety. All walks will be cancelled and none further will take place until further notice. Please check back for updates and we hope to see you when they return.

Historic Landscape Walks

Since April 1999 Herefordshire Council, Archaeology Section has been organising a series of morning, afternoon and evening walks throughout the county. These walks are designed to introduce members of the public to the constantly changing aspects of life, both past and present, that influence the type of landscape in which we live. People from the local community and from further afield are welcome. A reasonable level of fitness is required as some of the routes are over steep or uneven ground. Dogs are welcome on short leads (unless stated for specific walks).

These walks are free but due to the large numbers who regularly attend these Historic Landscape Walks, we have had to implement a booking procedure.

Opportunities to Volunteer

A number of our events and projects rely on volunteers to lend a hand and help. Archaeological work can be surveys, excavations or assiting the Historic Environment Record in data entry and historic research.

You can find below a list of current opportunities to volunteer. If you are interesting in contributing to any of these please contact the Archaeological Projects Manager, Tim Hoverd on 01432 383352 or
