Our Icknield Way Association AGM and morning walk will take place as advertised on Saturday 7 October at Ashley Pavilion but, very unfortunately, our speaker, David Rippington, will not be available due to illness.
We hope David will be able to talk to us in the future but, in the meantime, unless we can find another speaker at short notice, the AGM will be followed by tea and cakes
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 willdesign 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.
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the availability of our Guide Book from its website, marking it as out of print and leading to the unwary purchasing out of date versions from Amazon at inflated prices.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.
