To celebrate the life and voluntary work of Jim Robinson, who died in January, Haddenham Safe Walking and Cycling Group and Haddenham Village Society are organising a walk around the Wychert Way on Saturday 3rd August (two days after what would have been Jim's 73rd birthday).
The total distance is about 12.8 miles but shorter sections can be chosen according to your personal inclinations. The routes are virtually level and, thanks to Jim's efforts, there are very few stiles — the vast majority have been replaced with kissing gates.
The walk will start at Church End Green in Haddenham at 9.30am, and Option One (see below) should take between six and seven hours plus time for lunch at the Seven Stars in Dinton.
Here are the three walk options:
1. Start at 9.30am from Church End, and walk the whole of the Wychert Way with a stop for lunch at the Seven Stars.
2. Start at Church End but finish at about 1pm at the Seven Stars (7.2 miles, taking about 3.5 hours).
3. Start at about 2.30pm from the Seven Stars and walk to Church End (5.6 miles, taking about three hours).
If finishing or starting at the Seven Stars you can either catch the 280 bus which goes along the A418 or walk via the recently upgraded community path, Green Lane, from or to Haddenham Post Office (1.6 miles).
Please let Brian Bowman know as soon as possible if you would like to join the walk (click on the PDF on this page for the application form — or you can phone him on 01844 290346).
If you do not wish to do the walk, the organisers are looking for help with marshalling — again, Brian's the man to contact.
