Bicester & Kidlington Ramblers are a friendly group of walkers whose aims are to enjoy the countryside and other people’s company while walking.
We organise short mid-week walks and longer ones at weekends.
If you have any queries contact Mary Gough by email (see Contacts page) or by phone 07939 826412.
In addition we have a range of social activities, including an annual barbecue, a walking weekend away, quiz evening and theme walks.
We also help to promote the benefits of walking, to protect footpaths (through our footpath officer and parish path wardens), and keeping footpaths clear (through our path maintenance group, Blitz and Klean; details elsewhere on this site).
We are conveniently situated for walks in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside with its attractive villages and historic towns. Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire are close by and the Chiltern and Cotswold Hills are not far away.
Bicester is a historic market town set in the agricultural landscape of north east Oxfordshire. Close by is the site of the Roman Town of Alchester. The present town was founded as a Mercian frontier fort on the border between Mercia and Wessex. In the 19th century, the area became famous for local horseracing and as good foxhunting country and a hundred years later it was better known for its military establishments.
Kidlington is the largest village in England having resisted all proposals to make it a town. It has a 13th century church and a farm and vicarage dating from 16th century.
