'We walk between 5 and 14 miles most weekends, with a stop for either a pub lunch or a picnic on the majority of rambles. In the summer months there are shorter evening rambles. We also run two long weekend walking breaks each year and most years have a long distance walk. We hold several social activities during the year.'

'Perhaps the best known activity of the Oxford Fieldpaths Society is the organisation of a programme of walks ... Formed in 1926, the Oxford Fieldpaths Society (OFS) is one of the UK's oldest walking groups. The society was formed to protect the footpaths, bridlepaths and commons in the neighbourhood of Oxford, ensuring that they do not fall out of use and be forgotten.'

'Thank you for showing an interest in our area. We are mainly a walking group, with the additional attraction of a few invited suppers, BBQs, Christmas events, etc. Most of our regular members are males over forty, but we do attract and of course welcome younger males and ladies ... We are a fairly new and small group formed from the much larger BERKS & MID THAMES GROUP (hereafter referred to as "BERKS") to focus on the Oxford area. Many of our members contribute to BERKS events and vice versa.'

'Since its foundation in 1926, Oxford Preservation Trust has sought to protect Oxford's green setting for the benefit of all. The Trust now owns over 900 acres of land in and around Oxford - some let to tenants and some maintained by the Trust as public amenity land. Public access is encouraged where ever this is compatible with good land management and practice.  In keeping with sound environmental management much of our land is grazed for at least part of the year.'
