The Walk

This is a circular walk of just over 9 miles taking in the villages of Blewbury, South Moreton and East Hagbourne and forms part of the annual 'St Birinus Pilgramage' route. The walk is largely flat apart from one climb to the hill fort (where port & mince pies will be served)


Lunch will be at The Crown in South Moreton OX11 9AG. it is a Sunday roast with a choice of Chicken, Lamb, Beef or a Vegetarian option for £11.95. ( The pub is open all afternoon for anyone wishing to cut the walk short- the morning part of the walk is through villages, the afternoon is more open fields)


The pub doesn't need preorders but requires numbers so please let Stephen know (preferably by e mail / text) if you are coming on the walk by end of play on Thursday 12th December.

The start times are all 10:00 am unless otherwise stated. The mileages quoted are a rough guide only and liable to change on the day. In extreme cases the walk may change completely so contacting the walk leader a couple of days in advance is recommended.

In the event of rain please do still meet us at the appointed venue, generally the walk will still take place or we will consider alternative plans.

Though we aim to take a common sense approach to the safety of our members and those present at STRIDE events, all those attending do so at their own risk.
