Sibford Walkers

A group of people walking down a dirt road

We meet approximately every two weeks on a Monday for walks in the local area. Gather at Sibford Village Hall for a prompt start at 10am, unless stated otherwise below.

Boots are usually essential; poles may be helpful. We try to stay off roads, so there are usually stiles that have to be climbed over. Dogs are welcome provided they are put on a lead when requested; sometimes they may have to be lifted over a stile.

During COVID-19 restrictions we shall do walks which start and finish at the village hall so that we don’t need to drive and share cars. As usual we will leave the village hall car park at 10 sharp and do a circuit of approximately 2 hours.

Because of the current rule that only six people may gather together, those who wish to join a walk should contact Sue on 780 365 or sebannister@gmail.com to book in by the day before the walk at the latest, so that she can share out available places fairly and keep a record of participants. She will give preference to people who missed previous walk(s). If there are more than six participants, Sue will allocate people in groups of six, each including a designated leader. Groups will follow the same route, maintaining a distance of 100 metres between groups. You may not change groups during the walk but must stay in the group to which you are allocated.  Please be warned that in the unlikely event that we break the rules and get reported then whoever breaks the rule of six by swapping groups will be liable for the fine, rather than Sue!

Next walks:

  • 5, 19 October
  • 2, 16, 30 November
  • 14 December

Please contact Sue on 780 365 if you have any queries about one of the walks (for example if the weather looks doubtful) or about the group in general.

Parish Path Warden

Our local Parish Path Warden is Ian Sharp. He has volunteered to keep an eye on the paths in our local area and report problems that Oxfordshire County Council may be able to help resolve. If you spot a problem such as overgrowth, a difficult stile, locked gate, collapsing footbridge, or path not made good after ploughing, let Ian know at ian@iansharp.net or telephone 780 790. Alternatively, you may report a problem yourself via the Oxfordshire CC website.

Oxfordshire County Council maintains the Definitive Map of public rights of way.
