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 Marie 01189471929.
Organised walks each week in
£5 for first 3 months’ membership.
Sunday October 7th. Kidlington (5-6 miles). Start at 11:00am
Meet at the car park, behind St Mary's Church, 88 Church Street, Kidlington OX5 2BB for a walk towards Islip and Noke. Drinks at the end of the walk near car park. Bring some lunch but best not eat at pub.
Sunday October 14th. Radley (5 miles). Start at 1:00pm
Meet at The Bowyer's Arms pub, Radley OX14 3AE. Please do not park in the pub car-park itself, but park responsibly in Radley village.
We will walk through Lower Radley, joining the Thames Path for Sandford Lock. We can stop off at The Kings Arms for refreshments, returning the same way to Radley. The walk is fairly level, fields, paths, some roadways where it could be muddy. Wear adequate supportive footwear. If it rains heavily or has been very wet, I will alter the walk so it is much shorter, just taking in Lower Radley.
Sunday October 21st. Russell's Water (6-8 miles). Start at 1:00pm
A walk from Russell Water / Maidensgrove Common. Meet at the far side of the common and park up on the left hand side; it`ll be obvious where.
Directions: from Oxford get to Watlington. From Watlington you want to take the Nettlebed road (Howe Road). You get to the top of a very steep hill, ignore the right hand turn, then ignore the 1st left hand turn. You want the 2nd left turn sign posted Russells Water, Maidensgrove. Drive through the village, past the pond, past the Five Horseshoes pub until you get to the far side of the common.
Sunday October 28th. Henley (5 miles). Start at 12:00 noon.
A moderate walk from Henley-on-Thames. We will stop at the Flower Pot pub en-route for a drink though best not eat your lunch you've brought with you there. Pleasant river side walk on the return leg.
Meet at Mill Lane car park next to Henley football ground. Free parking too! DO NOT get confused with Mill Meadows car park which is nearer the town center with kids' play area. Suggest you Google "Mill Lane Henley" so you know where you are going. CAR SHARING A GOOD IDEA.
Directions: come through Henley; be on the Reading road A4155. You go over a mini roundabout and after 50 yards there is a turning on the left; that is Mill Lane. Brand new McCarthy and Stone retirement pads on the corner. If you miss that turning carry on to Tesco roundabout and return to have another bash at it.
