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 6th October. Enstone (5-6 miles). Start at 2.15pm.
A walk with sightings of exotic wildlife.
Meet on the side-road (“The Drive”) next to The ArtYard (bar bistro café grill), Enstone OX7 4NF (GR: 375247) for a mainly flat 5-6 mile walk through village, fields, woodland and beside water, including a look into St. Kenelm's Church (if it's open). Also, all being well we will see some exotic wildlife! Refreshments afterwards at The ArtYard.
Directions from Oxford (Pear Tree Roundabout): take A44 through Woodstock and continue on. 6 miles beyond Woodstock, you come to Enstone. The ArtYard is at far end of village, after some bends and a downhill section, on the corner of the A44 and a right turn called The Drive.
Please park on The Drive if possible; otherwise use the far end of the ArtYard car park.
Allow time to get through Woodstock, in case of events at Blenheim Palace.
Sunday 13th October. Minster Lovell (2 hours). Start at 2pm.
Meet in the car park of the Old Swan pub in Minster Lovell, OX29 0RN. This walk involves some hills and a short steep slope that will be muddy if it rains. Lovely views across the Windrush Valley from Crawley and a chance to explore the ruins of Minster Lovell Hall.
Sunday 20th October. Culham (about 4 miles). Start at 2pm.
