Step back through the centuries along The Ridgeway
SORRY – THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED
Follow in the footsteps of famous artists, enlightened king, local farmers, marching soldiers, wealthy landowners and celebrated writers from past centuries and millennia on this walk along The Ridgeway and Icknield Way.
Visit a prehistoric round barrow, inter-war artist village, Iron Age hillfort, medieval deserted village, chalk mark of disputed age (!) and more. Enjoy far-reaching viewpoints across the vales and, as writer Crossley-Holland once did when looking at the view from the hilltop of Whiteleaf, ‘imagine what it would have been like to have lived here generations or even centuries ago, I closed my eyes and opened my eyes and began to remove the elements I knew not to be ancient….’.
6 miles long with some hill walking so it will be strenuous at times. The pace will be moderate with several stops to interpret the view and the final third is easy, flat walking.
Please note that this walk is not suitable for young children or wheelchairs. Dogs on leads are welcome.
All events will comply with government guidelines on Covid-19, applicable at the time. If any Covid-19 outbreaks occur, or new restrictions are imposed, the event will be cancelled and a full refund given.Book Now
