Milton Keynes Parks Trust 25 Mile Challenge Walk

I would imagine most of us know about the Milton Keynes Parks Trust 25 Mile Challenge Walk. If you are like me you probably walk for pleasure and a 25 mile walk is definitely not that. Therefore I have decided to put it on the programme as two linear walks, which will take place on Wednesdays 17th and 24th October.

The first is 13½ miles from the start at Howe Park Wood, going through Tattenhoe Valley, around Furzton Lake and along Loughton Brook to Lodge Lake. We will then pass the Concrete Cows, through the North Loughton Valley Parks and on to St Peter’s Church at Stanton Low, before finishing at Stonepit Field.

The second is 12½ miles from Stonepit Field, past Linford Manor, along the Grand Union Canal to Willen Lake and on to Campbell Park. We will then follow the River Ouzel to the finish at Caldecotte Lake.

Half empty cars is because the walks are linear, which, in case you haven’t taken part in a linear walk before, means we leave half the cars at the finish point (the meeting place on the day) and take the other half of the cars to the start point.

Wales Coast Path 870 miles

The path follows the entire Welsh coastline from Chepstow on the Severn Estuary to Chester on the Flintshire Border in the north. The path goes past Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, along the waterfront of Cardiff Bay, from Swansea around the Gower Peninsula, past Tenby through the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, up the sweep of Cardigan Bay past Cardigan, Aberystwyth and Harlech, then around the Llyn Peninsula to Caernafon, over the Menai Strait onto the Isle of Anglesey, past the seaside town of Conwy and the mouth of the River Dee.

So far have reached Llangain, south of Carmarthen, a total of 206 miles. At Easter, over a 10 day period we will continue on into Pembrokeshire, where the walk will hijack the magnificent Pembrokeshire Coast Path and we will follow it through to St Bride’s Haven, all being well.

Milton Keynes Boundary Walk 60 miles

By the end of January we will have walked the first two sections, from Stony Stratford to Lavendon. On this programme we will complete the final three sections from Lavendon to Wharley End, then on to Great Brickhill and finally back to Stony Stratford.
