Find Kim's camp in Watlington Chalk Pits nature reserve, where you'll be able to warm yourself at the fire, learn more about the chalk pit itself, and the Watlington Viking Hoard. You'll also get a chance to learn some Viking fighting techniques. Take some time to explore the Icknield Way and/or Watlington Hill before heading home.
This event is part of the Watlington Nature Festival.
Each bubble is recommended to bring hand sanitiser so they can sanitise their hands after handling objects or using craft tools. You are recommended to keep 2m distance from people not in your bubble. There are no toilets in the Chalk Pits. There are public toilets in the centre of Watlington.
Mercure Thame Lambert Hotel is our prime sponsor for the Chilterns Walking Festival. The hotel is ideally located with lots of walks and rides from the doorstep, including the Ridgeway National Trail, the Icknield Way and the Chilterns Cycleway close by. There are circular walks too taking you up into the beechwoods and the nearby Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve. The Lambert Hotel welcomes walkers and cyclists, it is an ideal stop-off for lunch or tea and is a great touring based for those staying over. The hotel is located near J6 of the M40 and there is a 24 hour bus service (the Oxford Tube)between London and Oxford which stops just a few minutes walk from the hotel.
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!
