We have a very active programme of walks around Oxfordshire.
We organise a local walk nearly every Sunday throughout the year, and a weekday evening walk each week from May to August; sometimes we go away for a walking weekend.
Why not come on an Oxford walk with us - the countryside is beautiful
and it's a great way to meet people and make friends.
You don't even have to be a member to come along the first time.
You can always join IVC on a three-month introductory basis for £5
after your first walk if you enjoy it.
For more details, please phone Alan on 01865 554534.
Organised walks each week in
£5 for first 3 months’ membership.
Thursday May 3rd. Wolvercote (3 1/2 miles). Start at 7:15pm
Meet outside The Plough Inn,The Green, Upper Wolvercote, Oxford OX2 8BD for an approximately 3 1/2 mile walk. The walk will head across Port Meadow and back to The Plough for a drink.
Directions: By car, take First Turn off Woodstock Road (near the roundabout) and drive to the bottom of the hill. The pub is on your left.
By bus, No.6 from city centre (outside The Randolph) to First Turn stop, then 300 yards walk down hill to The Plough on the corner.
Sunday May 6th. Duns Tew (6-7 miles). Start at 2:00 pm. Bluebell walk in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds
Meet outside the church at Duns Tew (the Church of St. Mary Magdalene, Main Street, Duns Tew OX25 6JP) (grid ref: 457283) - park on the road there - for a fairly flat walk through the rolling countryside of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, featuring the church at Over Worton, the hamlet of Ledwell and (hopefully) some bluebells in Worton Wood. Refreshments afterwards at the White Horse pub in Duns Tew.
(Depending on rainfall, there may be muddy stretches in the 2nd half of the walk : I can offer an alternative last quarter of the walk (equal length, on quiet roads) if you wish).
Directions - take A4260 North from Kidlington for about 8 miles through Hopcroft's Holt traffic lights, with the Holt Hotel on your right. Continue on A4260 , soon onto dual carriageway. Turn left (signposted to Duns Tew), and continue into the village till you see a small grassy area in front of you, with the church behind it.
(n.b. On the way back, following these steps in reverse will force you to turn left onto the dual carriageway, but you can soon double back. Alternatively, follow the road which the church is on, away from Duns Tew, then you can turn right onto the A4260 going back towards Kidlington).
