ABOUT THE WALK – grade: Challenging Route.
More details to follow as soon as the risk assessment is complete. Quick summary:-
Many people think that the summit of Ivinghoe Beacon is the highest point however it is not. It stands at 233m but just to the south is a trig point at 249m near to Crawley Wood.
We will walk from the beacon on the familiar route down, and up through the coombe.
This is a challenging walk due to the steep steps and climb to the top of the summit.
You will find some steep steps near to this point and it is a good climb to the top.
A lot of this route follows the old Ridgeway Path that starts from Overton Hill near Avebury and runs all the way Ivinghoe beacon about 87 miles in total.
We will stop in the village of Aldbury, with it's quaint looking small duck pond and two pubs. A quick break in one of the pubs is essential!
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
- Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
- Carry a windproof jacket as it can be blowy on the top!
- I will be taking my walking poles to assist with the climb.
- A packed lunch
