THE Quantock Hills Walking Festival proved to be a hit once again this year.

More than 40 people from across Somerset and further afield took advantage of the fantastic weather to explore the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, led by expert guides from The Quantocks Volunteer Ranger Service, Friends of Quantock and Friends of Coleridge.

The event was organised by Stowey Walking, the Walkers are Welcome group for Nether Stowey and Over Stowey.

Lynne Abbott from Stowey Walking said: "I am so pleased the event was a success and wants to thank all those people who supported the walking festival."
