Attend an event

We organise a full calendar of events. These include walks, talks and conservation activities designed to introduce people to and educate people about the Blackwater Valley and its wildlife. Attending an event is a great way to get exercise and make new friends. We hope to meet you at one of our events.

Support at an event is always very welcome:

    Key information

    Our third Big Valley Ramble will be an 11 mile circular walk, with a shorter 5 mile option. Our reputation for scenic and well organised walks means that everything, including light refreshments, is completely taken care of. Tickets are selling fast – book your ticket now

    The route

    The ramble will take you through some of the most delightful scenery that Berkshire has to offer – the quintessentially English country lanes and paths that link Arborfield and Swallowfield. Spring’s wildlife and landscape will be in all its glory. Bring the family for a great day out!

    We’ll first go to Farley Hill – the midpoint of the short walk. The more energetic walkers will then venture along stretches of the Blackwater and Broadwater rivers, visiting Swallowfield for a lunch stop before returning to Aborfield Cross.
