The village walking group aims do a 4 to 5 mile walk once a month throughout the year, (whatever the weather).  The day of the week the walk takes place is purposely varied to cater for people with specific commitments.  During the wet and muddy winter months, we tend to use the redways of Milton Keynes but in the other seasons we explore the beautiful surrounding countryside

 2017 Walks

The walks will explore both Milton Keynes and the local countryside. Use will be made of MK redways during the wetter, colder months. As usual there will be a local pub for an optional meal after each walk.

Walks start at 10.00am (except June) and last about 2 hours covering about 4 miles.  Do come and join us – you’ll be very welcome.
