Walkers enjoy new route created by Ramblers volunteers

Over 150 walkers turned out to tread the Outer Aylesbury Ring in Buckinghamshire with the Aylesbury Ramblers on 7 September, just a few months after the group officially opened the route.

The festival was the latest celebration of the 53-mile trail, devised by the Aylesbury Ramblers to circumnavigate Aylesbury and take advantage of higher ground and great views outside the shorter existing Aylesbury Ring.

The Aylesbury Ramblers organised eighteen walks starting at different points along the Outer Aylesbury Ring, using their knowledge of local paths to create circular routes, with the aim of walking all 53 miles in one day and 120 miles overall.

“The OAR has been a great idea brilliantly executed and I think that the Walk Festival was really the icing on the cake; seeing a good number of people walking the route and enjoying it,” said Walk Leader Peter Robinson. “I think the Walk Festival formula could be an annual event.”
