Theme: Christmas Celebrations of the Landscape
Description: This festive walk is always a highlight of the annual Dadima’s connecting with nature programme and set in the gorgeous Chilterns. We encourage you to dress festive if you wish to (absolutely no pressure to). Do bring along friends and family. It will be a family suitable route of approx 6 miles (walked at a moderate pace, to include the famous Ridgeway). The Ridegway is such a special path and you can read more here: We will walk along the famous Ridgeway path, across Bald Hill and through Shirburn Wood.
Dadima’s walk leaders will have the expert geology team from the Open University supporting a few parts of this walk, sharing celebration stories of rocks and the magic of the landscape (fun and educational).
Parking, meeting point & weblinks: Weblinks: See FAQs section for the Lewknor meet-up point and free parking in the layby – also a bus-stop near the starting point. If there are any cost issues preventing you from attending, please email Geeta and she will support this in confidence.
Food/clothing: Please wear suitable clothing to suit the weather conditions on the day, and shoes that protect your feet. Bring a light backpack with any essentials as needed for a few hours. As walk leaders, we always bring a first-aid kit and some basics. We will be bringing some freshly brewed masala chai flasks. Last year was a magical event and we sang as we walked and ate together, celebrating a strong sense of community across generations. There is a pub at the parking point – see link: The Leathern Bottle if you wish to join at the end of the walk for a light lunch or a drink.
We look forward to celebrating nature with you as a community.
