RAMBLERS and people aiming to get fit are being asked to join forces with history buffs on a special series of walks in South Staffordshire through the spring and summer.
South Staffordshire Council's annual Walking Festival kicks off this month and commemorates the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War 1.
After listening to the views of local people, the Walking Festival dates are now spread out until September to give ramblers a chance to enjoy more walks throughout the year.
Walks are free, and range from an easy 30 minute stroll to more challenging longer walks. All are led by trained volunteers.
This year's featured routes includes walks from Penkridge to Dunston, and to Gailey and Bednall churches, as well as walks at Weston Park, Brewood and Wheaton Aston.
