Grab your Nordic walking poles and explore the Ridgeway National Trail and the Chilterns escarpment in Oxfordshire. Our 8 mile Nordic walk walk starts in the historic village of Lewknor and takes us in the footsteps of ancient wayfarers along the Icknield Way/Ridgeway. We then climb Shirburn Hill to Cowleaze Wood and the Aston Rowant NNR (total ascent 800ft/245m). Finally, we then descend Bald Hill and return to Lewknor. This is a fantastic walk for panoramic views, wild flowers (orchids!) and butterflies!
This walk is ideal for Nordic walkers (pole hire available £2 on the day).
Fit walkers also welcome.
Please bring drink and snacks for personal consumption during the walk. No facilities on route. Pub at end of walk.
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!
