Walking for Pleasure


Wendy Thomas

We aim to arrange one walk each month between March and November. These walks are almost always on a Saturday chosen to suit the leader. Most of our walks are in areas around Oxford itself or start in nearby towns and villages which are readily reached by public transport. If there is sufficient interest and some walkers with cars, we may be able to explore a few of those places not too far afield which are not easily reached by public transport but which offer fine walking opportunities.

You donít need to be a seasoned walker, just somebody with a pair of stout shoes who likes the open air, can cope with the occasional bit of mud (!) and is able to walk up to four or five miles at a leisurely pace. We reserve the right to postpone a walk if the weather is awful or a leader unwell.

We can always do with more leaders so maybe you have a favourite walk you would like to share with us; on the other hand, there may be somewhere you would like us to take you on a walk, e.g. somewhere noted for particular flowers or birds or butterflies: you will find us very willing to listen to your ideas. New members always welcome.

If you are interested in coming along to one of these groups or setting up a new group, please contact the SIGS Co-ordinator, Margaret Lipscomb:
