Campton & Chicksands Walks

The Parish Council is currently planning to install a pictorial information board in the centre of Campton Village showing a map of the parish and eight colour coded walks of varying routes/distances within the neighbourhood. Each walk has a full write up that is accessible (and may be printed) via the links below. The development of these write ups was prompted by one of the key non-policy actions in our Neighbourhood Plan (2021), aiming to help local residents and visitors to the parish explore our local countryside. Each write up includes maps and directions. Please click on the photo images below to access each of the eight walks.
