Note, please arrive by 6.15pm, we will set off at 6.30pm sharp)
Watermill Lane Car Park, Wolverton, Milton Keynes MK12 5NZ – (or you can park at the Pub next door (Wolverton House (Stonehouse Pub) Stratford Road) and walk round to the car park) – we most likely go to the pub afterwards for a drink and perhaps a stonebaked pizza.
ABOUT THE WALK – grade: Easy to Moderate Route.
Starting from Watermill Lane Car Park (no charge), we will walk along the Ouse Valley Trail heading towards the town of Stony Stratford. We walk along the tow-path for a good distance before heading back through the town and straight down the high street. There is quite a bit of history associated with Stony Stratford, therefore we will share an impromptu history lesson as we walk through the town. There is no time for browsing in the cute boutique shops, as we head out of town and make our way back to the car park.
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
A hi-vis vest is essential. There is an element of road walking on this route – safety first!
Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
Torch – please try to avoid a head torch as we tend to blind each other when chatting. I suggest a chest torch, shoe lights or a hand torch.
A drink and snacks.
