Come and join us for a leisurely walk round Grafham Water. Our walk will take us through some stunning countryside and beautiful picture worthy villages.

Our walk will start on the east bank and on the day we can decide whether we want to go clockwise or counterclockwise round the lake. This walk will take approximately 5 hours with adequate refreshment breaks with a pace to suit all.

Once the walk is complete we can drive into Perry for a quiet pint of something refreshing in the local pub!

For our four legged friends this route is definitely dog friendly although usual Countryside Code rules will apply and I ask that you please respect that not everyone is a dog lover.  Please note there will be stiles so you may have to lift your dog over them in places.  

COVID-19 - IMPORTANT, Please read the following before you sign up to this event:

  • Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are extremely mild, or who lives or is in a support bubble with someone showing symptoms, is asked not to attend. This is in line with the government’s coronavirus advice.
  • All are required to practice social distancing – staying 2m (not 1m) apart at all times, including the lunch stop.
  • Unfortunately, there won’t be any planned pub / café stops en route or at the end, and please don’t share sweets or snacks with others – we’re sorry!
  • Please bring your own hand sanitising gel for your own use throughout the day. Use of face coverings is at your own choice, but please bring one with you just in case it's needed. 
  • Each person should only attend one OutdoorLads event a week. (Leaders excepted on events if they are leading.)
  • On walks, one person to hold open gates and allow everyone to walk through – so minimising surfaces that multiple people touch. 
  • Be aware that opportunities for toilet stops may be minimal if facilities are closed.
  • Please, please cancel at your earliest opportunity if you are unable to attend or are unwell, so that we can allow others to take up these valuable event spaces.
  • Much as it's difficult - no handshakes or hugs!
