Heritage Walks Across Wicklow

Wicklow Uplands Council in partnership with Wicklow Local Sports Partnership, are delighted to announce a guided heritage walk titled  ‘A Journey to 1870’s Lacken’ to be held on October the 24th at 10am.

The first in a series of free, planned Heritage Walks across County Wicklow. Led by local guide Alfie Zeller, the event links with the recently restored Mass Paths, and passes numerous examples of abandoned settlements and historical sites, each with their own intriguing tale to tell.

Climbing up to the ridgeline between Lugnagun and Sorrel Hill, the panoramic views that take in the Wicklow Mountains National Park and the Blessington Lakes, provide a vista stunning setting for the occasion. Covid 19 measures such as social distancing, will be stringently implemented to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all involved.

As per the current Level 3 restrictions, this event is only open to residents of County Wicklow.

In line with the Covid 19 measures on outdoor gatherings, the organisers need to carefully manage the number of attendees, so if you would like to attend, you MUST confirm your interest and also receive a confirmation to secure your place. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis with booking closing at 5pm on the 22nd of October. Please correspond by email: bdunne@wicklowuplands.ie or phone: 01- 2818406.
