Macmillan Cancer Support organised their second Watership Down Walk - this year with twice as many walkers as last year.
"Aurelia and I greatly enjoyed last year's walk and are delighted this popular event is being held again. It was a pleasure to launch it with Richard Adams, author of Watership Down, who has put this part of the world on the map."

About 400 walkers took part, raising some £25,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

"The organisation was brilliant - the only problem being the closure a few days ago of the Royal Oak in Ecchinswell, where some of the walkers were planning to recuperate!"

Next year's event will be on May 3rd
