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.
Sunday November 5th. Leafield, Shakenoak and Ramsden (8 miles). Start at 11:30am
Meet outside the Pearl Chinese Restaurant, 110 Lower End, Leafield, Witney OX29 9QQ. Please park along the road outside the restaurant on the Leafield to Finstock road. Bring a packed lunch if needed. There's a pub at Ramsden where refreshments can be taken : we will take a short break at this half way point.
Sunday November 12th. Minster Lovell (5-6 miles). Start at 1:00pm
Our walk will take us around the lovely Minster Lovell area to Crawley and back, where we will have a short stop to look around the picturesque 15th century Minster Lovell Hall remains. The walk could be muddy in places if wet and has a few slopes.
Directions to meeting point: Turn off the B4047 Witney to Burford road towards Minster Lovell, signed Old Minster and Minster Lovell Hall. Park and meet before the village, by the gateway which is in front of you on the right hand bend just before the one way signs (OX29 0RN). We can have a drink afterwards at The White Hart pub, which is a short distance away.
Sunday November 19th. Eynsham (3-5 miles). Start at 1:30pm
Meet at Eynsham car park (free) on the junction of Back Lane and Clover Place (OX29 4QB). We will do a flat circular walk along country lanes and across fields (could be muddy) of 3-5 miles depending on the weather. Afterwards there will be tea and cake nearby, at the house of one of our members.
Sunday November 26th. Thame (6 1/2 miles). Start at 9:45am for 10:00am
A short winter’s circular walk towards the villages of Tetsworth and Moreton. It is a relatively flat walk and can be muddy in places. There will be a brief coffee stop at the Old Red Lion public house in Tetsworth. Directions: Park in layby of Highfield Close, Thame, (grid ref SP693058, postcode OX9 2AY). From Oxford take A40/A418 towards Thame. After exiting Roundabout towards Thame on the Oxford Road, almost immediately take the 1st turning on right which leads you into the layby. If you drive past Lord Williams School on the right, you’ve gone too far.
The walk should finish at approximately 1:00pm and a table has been booked at Treacles Tea Rooms in the centre of Thame (12 High St, Thame OX9 2BZ. Free parking available in Lower High Street, either in front of or behind the Town Hall building). It will be possible to look around Thame Museum afterwards which closes at 4:00pm.
