Home : Weekend Trips
This term sees the club organise 5 trips to cope with the inevitably high demand that comes with summer. We have a great selection of walks planned, particularly for those are looking to really stretch their legs!
To commence proceedings, Rob will journey to the Brecon Beacons. The two Chrises follow closely behind, with their Snowdonia trip at the end of 4th week. Andrew then tests the water in Pembrokeshire and Chris visits the wilderness of Northumberland. To wrap things up, Dom and Andrew will spend a long weekend in the Lake District.
The first three trips of term will depart from Oxford on Friday afternoon and return late on Sunday to utilise 2 full days of walking. The final two trips of term are longer, to allow for three days of walking. The stated price includes transport, accommodation for two nights and five hearty meals (except the Lakes Expedition, which only includes transport and accommodation) - a real bargain! The only meals not covered are dinner on Friday and Sunday evenings - a dinner stop will be made to break up the journey in each case.
Please note that due to the club having to commit money to organise the trips, once you have paid for your place, your money cannot be refunded unless the place is subsequently filled. Prices are dependant on the price of the accommodation and the distance from Oxford - prices marked as * are estimates, since the cost of accommodation was unknown at the time of printing.
There will of course be plenty of time to take photos, however walking rather than sightseeing is the emphasis on these trips. The Club lends kit to members free of charge but you should be aware that for the safety of the group, the trip leaders will refuse participation to anyone who is inappropriately dressed.
To sign up for trips please come along to the Free Tea on Wednesday 26th April (1st Week) at 17:00 in Wadham College Old Refectory, where you can chat with the Trip Leaders to find out more about the trips and then decide which ones you want to sign up for. If you cannot come to this event but would like to sign up for trips, the please send a cheque made payable to 'OU Walking Club' to the Principal Trip Leader by the end of 1st Week.
