STONY STRATFORD HISTORY WALK | 2.5 MILES | EASY
November 8, 2021 @ 6:15 pm - 7:30 pm GMT
ABOUT THE WALK:
Stony Stratford has a long and interesting history owing to its position at the crossing point of the River Great Ouse. This walk is being led by Julia Doherty who is not a historian by any means, and will simply be following an established route created by Stony Stratford Council. Julia will be pointing out key historic points and sharing stories along the trail including the old courthouse, two famous inns, the street that changed its name, the firehouse, Queen Eleanors cross and many more quirky things about this wonderful town.
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.
If you are interested in purchasing any AG merchandise, or perhaps some snacks/water for the walk, then “Dave”, the AG mobile shop will be on-site from 5.45 pm.
MEETING PLACE: Meet at Oysters Lane Car Park (there are two postcodes online for this car park, so it's probably best to use the What3Words link below).
