Join us for a bacon butty & cuppa (on the house) at The Alford Arms before venturing out into the lovely Gade Valley. The walk starts out along a Roman Road, passes a buddhist monastery and through the water meadows beside the River Gade. Along the way there are outstanding views over the valley and the opportunity to spot the local wildlife.
Please bring suitable footwear and clothing for the conditions, water, snacks and simple first aid kit. Toilets are available at The Alford Arms. There will be a vegetarian / vegan alternative available at the start. Water bottles filling station. Walk returns to The Alford Arms in time to enjoy lunch or a drink.
The Chiltern Society is dedicated to protecting 650 square miles of woodlands and valleys, including London's closest designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Alford Arms is hidden in an unspoilt valley on the edge of Ashridge Forest.
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!
