This year's programme of excursions builds on last year's successful guided walks, which many members enjoyed. This is a programme of walking lectures rather than excursions as we used to organise them. For each day there is a specialist guide. There is no organised transport - participants make their own way there and back. All excursions are limited to 20 participants and the cost of £10, includes a simple tea where we can arrange it. Members are asked to book online. Booking does not have to entail online payment, and the system allows you to choose either to pay online by Paypal or send a cheque to Shaun Morley, Tithe Corner, 67 Hill Crescent, Finstock, Chipping Norton, OX7 3BT payable to OAHS. Full details of excursions are listed below and on the website. Participants will receive email reminders of excursions. All enquiries should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
