Ridgway Part IV – Ivinghoe Beacon

Saturday 30th November

**Update: This walk has been cancelled, and will be postponed for a later date. A replacement long walk will be happening on the same day, along the Chiltern way.**

Join us for the finale of the Ridgeway walks, where we will head into the heart of the Chilterns. This section is one of the more varied parts of the trail, passing through beech woods, rolling hills, chalk grasslands, and even goes by Chequers. The trail will end at Beacon Hill, and we will take a bus back from Ivinghoe via Aylesbury.

Everyone is welcome, regardless of if you’ve come to the previous parts. At 33km this walk is a bit on the long side, so please make sure to bring plenty of food and water along with suitable footwear.
