We know that a good walk in the glorious Chilterns countryside is wonderful for our physical health but it has a powerful positive impact on our mental health, too. So, on this World Mental Health Day, ditch the suits, grab some boots and give yourself a boost! You can also help to raise funds for the Bluebells Day Centre, a Henley based charity dedicated to supporting Dementia patients and their families.
Starting in Nettlebed, our 6 mile circular route takes us deep into the hills and includes two steady climbs (680 ft total ascent). Along the way we are greeted by the vibrant autumn colours of the beech woods and take time to explore evidence of brick and pottery making, the romantic church ruins in Bix Bottom and discover beautiful stained glass windows by John Piper.
Please bring snacks and drink for personal consumption during the walk. No facilities en-route. Post walk cafe/pub option in Nettlebed.
Complete Outdoors are our primary sponsors for 2018 & 2019. At their Bourne End (Herts) shop, you will discover all of the equipment, clothing and accessories you need to launch your next expedition into the great outdoors - whether a day's hike close to home, or an assault on the Matterhorn.
Could this be you? We are seeking additional sponsors to enable the festival to continue going from strength to strength - get in touch with AWeiss@chilternsaonb.org if you'd like to know more!
