What we're about

Berkhamsted and Tring Social welcomes all friends and residents, new and established, to our social group. The aim of our group is to provide our members with opportunities to meet new people in the area with similar interests and to make new friends who want to get out and about in the local area. We will be offering a range of events and have a strong commitment to supporting our local community and local events. We will be aiming to offer a range of events, such as film nights, theatre trips, concerts, book club, the wine club, quizzes, pub nights, meals out etc. We will also be hoping to offer outdoor events such as walks and hikes and other physical activities in the beautiful Chilterns area around us.
Initially, due to lockdown, we will resume some of our regular events such as the book club (via Zoom) and walks (with limited numbers).
You will recognise our event hosts as the same people who made great efforts to provide members with a variety of events over several years in the former Berkhamsted Social group which has now come to an end. We will be looking for new, committed hosts with fresh ideas, too, to help our local group grow and develop, offering a range of regular and new events to suit the different interests and tastes of our members. Some events will have a small cost so that the organisers can cover the subscription fees, but many events will remain free of charge. We ask that all members keep their RSVP’s up to date and respect the efforts made by all hosts in offering local and varied events for our enjoyment.
Look forward to you joining us at an event soon!

Midweek Walk: Ashridge to Ivinghoe Beacon circular walk

Ashridge Visitor Centre

This is a 6.6 mile walk which should take less than 3 hours through the Ashridge Estate woodland before moving on to some steep slopes approaching Ivinghoe Beacon where we can enjoy the spectacular view. We walk across the ridge to Gallows Hill then descend to fields and through The Coombe where we walk through dense woodland. There is a steep rise before coming out of the woods and along a farm lane to re-enter Ashridge woods. A 30 minute walk back along Duncombe Terrace to finish back at the visitor centre where we can have some refreshments at the cafe.

The address for the Ashridge visitor centre is Moneybury Hill, Ringshall, Berkhamsted HP4 1LX but be wary of SatNav directions which could lead you astray. The visitor centre is well signposted from the B4506.

Please note that this walk is not led by a qualified leader and, as such, isn't covered by insurance. Be sure to wear suitable boots and clothing. The organiser cannot be held responsible for any injuries, however caused. Members are expected to take responsibility for their own preparation and safety. Please be sure to make me aware if you have any medical conditions.

Dogs are welcome as always but please be mindful to keep them on leads for roads and around other animals.

If you are unable to attend please be sure to change your RSVP otherwise our departure will be delayed. My contact number is[masked]
