The Oxfordshire Area has ten groups including a Twenties & Thirties group and a Weekend Walkers group. We publish a twice-yearly joint walks programme, that is, among all those groups. We have an active Footpath Subcommittee and run an annual Leadership & Navigation course. As of 1 March 2017, we have a new website.

Our areas help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Areas help look after paths and green spaces, open up new places to explore and act as the leading voice on walking matters near you. They also support our local groups to organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness.
