STRA Walking Group


In preparation for Gini’s Ben Nevis Trek in September, STRA members David Flack and Gini Moore braved an afternoon of heavy showers, strong winds and bright sunny intervals as they took to the Chiltern Hills. The three and a half mile walk took them through part of the scenic Ivinghoe Hills Nature Reserve. The chalk grasslands on this area are nationally important for wildlife and are home to many species of plants and insects especially butterflies. Some of these are nationally rare.


Gini and David rounded off their afternoon walk with a well-deserved tea and HUGE cream scones at the Brownlow Cafe on the Ashridge Estate.


If you would like to join us for future walks either locally or further afield and wish to get fit or you would just like to enjoy the fresh air and countryside please email Gini on .


If there is enough interest we will post details of future walks on the website.

Horsenden Hill and canal walk

Todays walk (Sunday 8 June) was over Horsenden Hill, along the canal to Alperton. Back along the canal to Horsenden Bridge and then back to Sudbury. A journey of 7 miles. Along the way we saw Moorhen and other water fowl, a heron and turtles sun bathing on logs in the canal. Many birds were nesting and there were plenty of ducklings.


Please contact Virginia Moore if you would like to join this group.

STRA Walking Group Sunday outing

On Sudbury 20 July 2014  the STRA walking group visited St Mary's church on Harrow on the Hill. Starting at the Black Horse pub we walked across the fields of Harrow school to St. Marys church. There we climbed the tower to see the church bells and to learn some of their history. We ended the day with a walk back to Sudbury via Sudbury Hill.

Canal walk March 2015

STRA walking group walked from Butler's Green to Northala fields on the 1 March 2015. At the end of the walk we enjoyed a coffee at the tea rooms. If you would like to join us for further walks please contact us.

Walk 25 May 2015

As part of National Walking Month our next walk is to Little Venice picking up the Grand Union Canal route from Perivale (about 7 miles)  
There will be plenty of opportunities along the way to stop for refreshments, i.e. Sainsbury's Alperton, Asda Park Royal, Ladbroke Grove Sainsbury's and then finally onto Little Venice.  The walk has plenty to offer from great scenery to taking a nice walk along the traffic free towpath of the Grand Union Canal.
For those wishing to leave the walk early, there are several bus routes along the way which will connect with buses going to Sudbury. When we get to LIttle Venice we will be quite near to the 18 bus route and we could take the bus rather than going back along the towpath if we preferred. 
Details of the meet up are as follows:
The Ballot Box Pub, Horsenden Lane North, Greenford, UB6 7QL
May 24th at 10.30am
We are a small walking group and so if you would like to bring a guest or family member you are quite welcome to do so.     
I have created a Facebook Page for the STRA Walking Group to post updates - please show your support and like the 'STRA Walking Group' page.
