OUSE VALLEY RIVER WALK | 4.2 MILES | EASY

October 28 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm BST

A lovely river walk which circles back through the quaint village of Stony Stratford (where you will hear all sorts of tales from history)

Open to members and non-members.

Starting from Watermill Lane Car Park (no charge), we will walk along the Ouse Valley Trail heading towards the town of Stony Stratford. We walk along the tow-path for a good distance before heading back through the town and straight down the high street. There is quite a bit of history associated with Stony Stratford, therefore we will share an impromptu history lesson as we walk through the town. There is no time for browsing in the cute boutique shops, as we head out of town and make our way back to the car park.

Please arrive by 6.15 pm we will set off at 6.30 pm sharp. If this is your first walk then please seek out the walk leader (usually in an Adventure Geek baseball cap, or high vis jacket) to receive your new walker briefing.

MEETING PLACE:  Meet in the free car park off Stratford Road / Watermill Lane (NOT the pub car park).

Note: we often meet in places where there is no postcode, so we encourage you to use What3Words app which will take you to the exact location.

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

  • A torch is essential for all night walks from October to Marh. We recommend this brand if you do not already have a torch.

  • Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
  • A drink. 
  • Hand sanitizer 

RULES TO KEEP YOU SAFE :

  • We walk in all weathers, however, if we have a weather warning then the event will be cancelled.
  • We will only ever walk in groups of 15 or less. If we have more than 15, we will have two walk leaders and walk in opposite directions.
  • Sweets at the halfway stage – we call this “squidge and dip” – hand sanitiser, then dip in for your free sweets. (Please bring your own hand sanitiser)
  • Your walk leader is not allowed to carry personal possessions for you.  Please bring a bag with drink/pockets to carry keys/hats/gloves etc  (think about supporting the AG brand by purchasing an AG rucksack!). 
  • If you wish to bring and PPE, masks etc, please do.  All walk leaders will also carry sanitizer, protective gloves and the first aid kit.
