Walk with Stone Age Woman at the Chilterns Walking Festival 15 - 29th May

Click here for details of the events, most of them incorporating the Icknield Way

Kev at Live Primally is walking the Way over 3 - 4 days starting 1st July 2017

I am hoping to walk the whole path from Ivinghoe to Knettishall in one hit over 3-4 days in order to raise money for a conservation charity that I am involved with call the World Owl Trust.

The IW has a great personal link to myself and my family and it is something that I have wanted to do for a long time.

Here are the links to my Just Giving site if people wish to sponsor me https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Kevan-Palmer

And here is a link to my latest post on my blog outlining my walk https://liveprimally.com/2017/05/07/a-walk-through-history/

Subsequent blogs will be posted on www.liveprimally.com and people can follow me on twitter @LivePrimally and on Instagram @liveprimally

Art Strategy at Houghton Regis

The public art commission for the Taylor Wimpey site in Houghton Regis, which is close to the Icknield Way, is looking for assistance.

The Chiltern Way goes through the site, and the Icknield Way, the most ancient route in Britain, runs very close by.  These two famous Ways will provide the theme for the artwork. Artist Kay Aplin will design sculptures inspired by waymarkers in the form of standing stones.

Kay welcomes any suggestions and local knowledge about the area, particularly sites of interest along the Icknield Way from Ivinghoe Beacon – Pirton.  Click here for more information.

Tony Robinson: Walking Britain’s Ancient Tracks - The Icknield Way

The first programme in this new series was shown on Channel 4 on Saturday 15 October and featured the Icknield Way.

Ramblefest website

Although a useful site for accommodation and services along most long-distance footpaths, this site has repeatedly failed to remove misleading comments about the availability of our Guide Book from its website, marking it as out of print and leading to the unwary purchasing out of date versions from Amazon at inflated prices.  Use with care.
