The Trust Anticipates Another Sell-out Walk – Early booking advised
The Blackwater Valley Countryside Trust (BVCT), are inviting people to take part in their highly popular annual ‘Walk the Path’ event and see the Blackwater Valley Path, from Sandhurst to Swallowfield, in all its spring glory – but they are already advising anyone interested to book early.
The River Blackwater is a hidden natural gem right on the Berkshire/Hampshire borders and on Sunday 24th April walkers will be able to enjoy the last 17 kilometres (11 miles) of its Path – a riverside walk through beautiful rural countryside with a surprising variety of different habitats. An added attraction is that the walk will pass through some special sections not normally open to the public.
This highly successful event is now in its 11th year and taking part costs just £6 for BVCT members and £10 per person for non-members. But numbers are limited, and the last two years have sold out.
- transport at either the walk start or finish;
- refreshment points en route;
- information boards along the way;
- a collection service if you’re unable to finish the walk for whatever reason;
- variable start times to avoid congestion;
- a walk leader, back marker and designated walk guides;
- route maps so you can walk at your own pace.
Participants are invited to bring friends and family, their neighbours, or come alone and walk this most beautiful part of the Blackwater Valley. Dogs are welcome but minibus regulations mean separate transport arrangements will be necessary.
Full details including a downloadable booking form can be found on the Trust website www.bvct.org.uk. If this presents a problem messages can be left on 07825 469108.
Booking opens Monday 1st February.
