Walks in 2022

Ridgeway Walks on 5/6th June

There will be two walks in June 2022. Both are along the iconic Ridgeway path with the second walk diverting to Nettlebed for the tribute concert to Rowan Godel in the evening at the Nettlebed Folk Club. Joining JJ and the Reluctant Ramblers band for the concert will be members of Oysterband. the Ladies of Nettlebed and other musical colleagues of Rowan.

The first walk is on Sunday 5th June, starting at 11am at the Uffington White Horse, walking east along the Ridgeway then down into Blewbury to finish with a drink at the Red Lion pub. The walk is 16 miles and is expected to finish around 5pm. They are car parks and meeting places if you wish a shorter walk.

The Red Lion is staying open for us and are providing a special Jubilee Menu. If you wish to join us to eat then please click here for the menu and order your main course in advance by email to info@jj-rr.org

Note that this Sunday is the day of the 1km Jubilee Street Party on the bridge between Streatley and Goring. The bridge is closed to traffic between 12.30 and 6pm. See here for further details.

The second walk is on Monday 6th June. Meet outside Pierreponts Cafe on the Goring side of the Thames near the bridge to leave at 11am. Unfortunately, the cafe is not open on a Monday. The walk goes north along the Ridgeway and Thames Path, turning eastwards following the Ridgeway and over to Nettlebed for the tribute concert to Rowan Godel in the evening. This walk is 12.5 miles.

As all the regular walkers know, we are not a guided walking party but are there, like you, to enjoy walking and music and being together in astonishing landscape. Anyone is welcome to join for either a whole walk or just some of one. Be sure you are fit and able to walk the distances and look after yourselves, bring the right gear, carry what you need but not too much and make your own arrangements for transport. Any questions, please ask via email to info@jj-rr.org

Further details will be posted on this website nearer the dates of these walks.

If you are planning to join us for either or both of these walks, please email info@jj-rr.org so that we can anticipate the numbers.
