Thame & wheatley ramblers

Thame & Wheatley Ramblers have a  programme of walks for the next three months.  They are also organising promotional walks again – a short walk from Thame which comes with coffee and cakes, and middle and longer distance walks too.  

The newsletter captures the very essence of Sydenham.  It is produced by a small, dedicated team and is carefully designed to convey both essential information and the fun events that go on. It is delivered free in hard-copy direct to each house in the village, every couple of months.

The team welcomes contributions, so if you would like to add anything, share pictures or just say something then look for the details at the beginning of the newsletter as to when and how to do this.

If you wish to receive it electronically you can request this from

LATEST edition

NEWS and information :

With effect from 4th April there will be small increases in the two carparks shown below and to the terms and conditions around permits. The hour’s free parking in the SODC carparks in Thame remains unaltered.



At this time of year we start to think about the mud drying up and getting out to walk in the beautiful English Countryside again, but where to find new and interesting walks?
Walking in Oxfordshire has hundreds of walks to download and print, free, it also has books of walks, details of all the walking groups in the county and much more. Whether you want to walk on your own or with a group all the information is there in one place.
John Harris (the custodian of the website) said ‘There is so much walking information on the web but it is difficult to find. Walking in Oxfordshire (part of the Walking in England website) has brought it together in one place so whether you are walking from home, or away on holiday, you will be able to find a walk suitable for you’.
With walks from half a mile to twelve miles plus long, and a note of suitability for pushchairs and wheelchairs, everyone can find a walk to enjoy.
