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.
Please contact Kate (01865 841565) if you'd like any further information.
Organised walks each week in
£5 for first 3 months’ membership.
Sunday June 30th. Blenheim Estate (4.5 miles). Start at 2pm
Meet outside The Black Prince, 2 Manor Road, Woodstock OX20 1XJ for a leisurely (I repeat leisurely) walk around Blenheim Estate. There will be an option for tea and cakes after the walk.
Please refrain from using the pub car park. You can park at the free Hensington Road car park, by the library or on street parking in adjacent roads.
Sunday July 7th. Stonesfield (7.5 miles). Start at 1.30pm
Meet outside the parish church, Stonesfield, OX29 8QU at 1.30pm for a 1.45pm start.
This Cotswold walk, much of it on the Oxfordshire Way, begins from the charming village of Stonesfield and visits the larger village of Charlbury.
When arriving in Charlbury we will stop at The Crown Public House for refreshments. Tea/coffee plus of course other drinks will be available. The Manager has apologised that she is unable to provide cake, but is happy for walkers to bring their own snacks and consume them on the premises.
When everyone is rested, the walk will continue from Charlbury, back to Stonesfield.
Sunday July 14th. Clifton Hampden (6 miles). Start at 1.30pm
Meet in the public car park opposite the Barley Mow, Clifton Hampden, OX14 3EH for a 6 mile walk, largely along the River Thames. (Shorter if very wet.) We hope for drinks and refreshments at the Barley Mow at the end of the walk.

Meet at the Old Kiln, Nettlebed RG9 5BA for a 6-7 mile walk.

Park on the side of the village green opposite The Cock Inn. We walk from Combe to Blenheim Great Park, Stonesfield and back to Combe, with a couple of short steepish sections. Teas are served at The Library at Combe Green from 3pm to 5pm.
