An Outstanding Week in September!


Walkers on trails, sunlight - Tamar Valley AONBSeptember has always been an outstanding month in our countryside with harvests being brought safely home, trees and meadows taking on their autumnal colours, skies offering a full palette of hues, musky bonfires lingering in the evening air and a welcoming calmness for visitors.

September this year, however, promises to be even more outstanding!

The AONB Family has worked together to organise a week (and a bit) long programme of events to help people enjoy and be inspired by Britain’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs). Starting on Saturday 17th September and continuing through to Sunday 25th September, the events can be found on

As NAAONB’s Jill Smith, explains

“Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are some of the most beautiful, cherished and outstanding landscapes in the UK. They are vibrant and dynamic and offer a wealth of opportunities for people to enjoy our countryside.

Outstanding Week shows people how to get involved and get out into our AONBs’ outstanding landscapes to enjoy country shows, dark sky discovery nights, walking festivals, archaeology walks, wood fairs, foraging and local food festivals, wildlife walks, coastal and marine days, thatching courses, drystone walling competitions, charcoal making, bioblitz, inspiration through art and music and many, many other activities. Whether you are looking for an outstanding view, intending to reward yourself with a cream tea or trying to kick start a new health and wellbeing regime, you can’t fail to have a great time in one of our 46 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. They are Landscapes for Life in so many different ways”.

Charlotte Dancer from the Tamar Valley AONB team says, “We are delighted to be involved in this year’s Outstanding Week. A number of organisations in our area have events taking place during this time, highlighting the many qualities that make our landscape so special”.
