Chair's Christmas Cracker - Thursday 23rd December 2021

Chair’s Christmas Cracker, Thursday 23 December. Start time 9.15am. 11.5 miles  from the free public carpark at Three Locks, near Stoke Hammond and Soulbury.

This will be a shorter walk with an earlier than usual Thursday start time to allow us to have a longer lunch time in Leighton Buzzard without rushing to get there for midday! There are two possible pub options for lunch: Wetherspoons, The Swan Hotel,  with usual Spoons food and drink. But for those who don’t want to do the Spoons thing there is also The Black Lion. They don’t do food here, except locally made pork pie and cheese boards, but it’s possible to eat your own food inside with a bought drink or bring in hot takeaway food to eat outside under covered patio at the rear. We won’t have a reservation in either pub – we’ll take pot luck! There are also plenty of other cafes in town. There’s about 1100 feet of ascent/descent and will be a ‘’goldilocks pace’ – not too fast but we won’t be hanging about!

To keep things manageable, I’m limiting this walk to 20 people. Please email me: , or phone/text: 07932 627476 as soon as possible to book your place.
