This circular walk of approximately 9 miles is through a mixture of fields and tracks on the Lambourn Downs leading onto the Ridgeway national trail. The walk takes us through the village of Farnborough where John Betjeman lived for several years at the Rectory here. The church in the village has a beautiful stained glass window in his memory. As we head onto the Ridgeway there’s a monument to Colonel Robert Loyd-Lindsay, a founding member of the British Red Cross, who was awarded the Victoria Cross in the Crimean War. We might be lucky enough to get the last pickings of blackberries during the walk as there are plenty of bramble bushes along the way. We can visit the pub at the end of the walk if anybody wishes to have a drink.

Don't forget to bring a packed lunch and refreshments. We will walk whatever the weather, (unless there is a severe weather warning from the Met office) so please dress appropriately.

We will meet at 10.15am for a prompt 10.30am start.

What better way to celebrate an extra day in the year than to have a party! As 29th February 2020 fell on a Saturday, it seemed the only thing we could do was host a 1920s style party! Everyone threw themselves into the spirit, and you can check our Facebook page for more amazing photos.
