Woburn Sands circular – Joint OUWC/CURAC walk

Date: Saturday 21st May (end 4th week)

This week we visit the wooded hills of Bedfordshire’s Greensand Ridge on a joint walk with the Cambridge University Rambling Club, and we will hopefully get a free glimpse of some exotic animals in Woburn Safari Park. Starting at the village of Woburn Sands we climb the slopes of Aspley Heath, skirting the remains of Danesborough Iron Age hill fort. After passing through the Woburn village, we meander through Woburn Park  estate, home to over 1,200 deer and nine different species. We continue on a footpath through the safari park that takes us in close proximity to many of the animal enclosures. We then return to Woburn Sands through fields and woodland.
NB: Because we are travelling further from Oxford than usual, this walk has a later return time.
