AFTER a long day’s hiking at the Kington Walking Festival next month, ramblers can curl up with a copy of ‘Walking the Old Ways of Herefordshire’, a new book that will be launched at the festival.

The 384-page paperback from Andy and Karen Johnson explores Herefordshire’s past, with each walk leading the reader around some of the county’s historical landmarks and features.

The book launch – 6.30pm at Kington’s Oxford Arms on September 19 – will be followed by an illustrated presentation by Heather Hurley on ‘Exploring the Green Lanes of Herefordshire.

Tickets for that talk are available at .
