Covid Secure Events - getting back outdoors

All of our groups are now able to offer events. Following the recent change to Government rules events taking place after the 14th of September in England will be restricted to a maximum of six participants (including the person organising the event). Events in Scotland and Wales will continue to operate in accordance with the local regulations.

You will only be permitted to attend a GOC event if you have registered in advance via the website. Every person attending an event must register individually. A record of participants at all events will be kept, and will be shared with NHS Track and Trace if requested.

GOC discourages the sharing of lifts to reach events.

Any event may need to be cancelled at short notice in order to comply with local lockdown regulations, or where an event leader is required to self-isolate. Always check the website for any last minute changes in the morning before travelling to an event.

When attending an event, please ensure that you bring a supply of hand sanitizer and a face covering along with your usual food and walking equipment.

If you, or someone in your household, has Covid-19 symptoms you should self-isolate in line with government guidelines, and must not take part in GOC events. Symptoms include a high temperature, a new continuous cough and the loss, or a change to your sense of smell or taste.

Are you ‘clinically vulnerable’? If you (or someone you live with) are at higher risk of getting seriously ill from coronavirus, you should take extra care to minimise contact with others from outside your household.Taking part in a GOC activity may put you and those around you at higher risk. It may not be the right decision at this time. Remember – everyone over 70, and those with certain underlying health conditions are considered to be ‘clinically vulnerable’

General information

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT WILL NOW BE REPEATED ON THE FOLLOWING DAY, SUNDAY 23 AUGUST.

The Chess Valley is one of the most beautiful and tranquil parts of the Chiltern Hills – which makes it all the more amazing that along its whole length it is never more than a couple of kilometres from the Metropolitan Line of the London Underground. This walk explores it thoroughly, starting in Chorleywood, whose station and common already have a very rural feel, and afterwards dipping in and out of the valley, with a number of fine panoramic views.

Terrain / Difficulty

There are several hill climbs, but with reasonably gentle gradients. Early in the walk there are a couple of sections of lane that can be muddy or even flooded after heavy rain

Approximate Distance

10 miles
