Walking Britain’s Oldest Road

Living Magazines Walkers on Ridgeway Hike

Join Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity for an 80-mile charity hike along Britain’s oldest road next summer and experience the breath-taking views and historic sites along the way on this 4-day guided trek.

The 80-mile hike follows the Ridgeway, used since prehistoric times by travellers, herdsmen and soldiers, from Swindon back to Aylesbury, walking and being supported by fellow walkers, united in the same goal – to support Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity.

This year 40 hospice supporters took part on the charity’s first ever Ridgeway Hike and raised over £70,000 for local hospice care. The walkers each had a different reason to why they wanted to take part in the hike and support the charity, many walking in memory of loved ones who had been cared for by the Hospice team.

Steve said, ‘I can honestly say that is the best and most enjoyable extreme event I have done. Thank you all.’

If you are interested in taking on this challenge the next trek will take place from 912 June 2022. You can find out more about the Ridgeway Trek and details of how to sign up at www.fnhospice.org.uk/ridgewaytrek2022 or call 01296 429975 for more information.
