An enthusiastic group of leaders enable walkers to improve and maintain their fitness, while enjoying some of the most stunning views within two of Oxfordshire and Berkshire's very best Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The daytime walks are often followed by a social gathering and we also run themed walks and social events throughout the year.

Our timetable is given above. The RH column gives the average duration in minutes.

The A, B, and C grades are explained beneath the timetable.

The right walk for you?

A = 4.5 to 5.5 miles 60 to 75 minutes - Very fit
B = 3 to 4.5 miles - 45 to 60 minutes - Fit
C = 1.5 to 3 miles - up to 45 minutes - Not walked much, looking to be more active or recovering from illness or injury
*First Steps = 1/2 to 2 miles - 10 to 30 minutes - Not used to walking or recovering from illness or injury. Elderly. May need initial support. Often referred by doctor

*New First Steps walkers must contact us before walking to ensure that a leader is available to give them individual support. It may be possible to undertake First Steps at a time to suit the walker, but they will be expected to integrate into the advertised C level walks as soon as they are able

Routes are not pre-planned to ensure the group of the 'moment' is properly catered for

We start all our walks from The Rectory Gardens beside Goring Village Hall.

The best way to find out more about the group, where and when to meet and what to expect is to visit our regularly updated website www.goringgapwalks.co.uk
