The National Trust for Jersey is staging its annual ‘Walking through Autumn’ festival next week from 11 to 15 September. Sponsored by Intertrust, the festival offers the public the perfect opportunity to enjoy the very best of the Island on foot at one of the most beautiful times of the year.
‘Walking through Autumn’ offers over 20 walks taking in several National Trust including Grouville Marsh and other sites around the Island. Participants can enjoy themed walks such as a low water archaeological walk, coastal and inland foraging, heritage trails around St Lawrence and Trinity, nature walks, a bat walk around St Peter’s Valley at sunset and even Forest Bathing!
Jacob Smed, Managing Director at Intertrust Jersey, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting this event again. It’s a privilege to work with the Trust and be part of protecting and promoting Jersey’s natural beauty and heritage with such a great event.
“There’s something for everyone as the walks focus on the National Trust's sites and wildlife and so are the perfect opportunity to get out in the fresh air and enjoy autumn with friends and family."
Donna Le Marrec. Marketing and Events Manager for The National Trust in Jersey said: “We’re fortunate to have many wonderful sites and buildings in our care and what better way to enjoy them, but with a walking festival. Each walk is led by a Blue Badge Guide, specialist or by one of our Lands Team and is tailored to a specific area or site. What sets this festival aside, is the opportunity to experience ‘behind the scenes’ such as access to a particular site or to access somewhere not normally available to the public. We’re very grateful for Intertrust’s support, as without them this activity wouldn’t be possible”.
The festival starts on Wednesday 11 September with the first walk at 10.00am and finishes on Sunday 15 September. All walks are free for National Trust members and £10 per walk for non-members (£5 for adults and £1 for children for the Bat Walk at
