Circa 1000 or more people made the journey from Odiham to Runnymede on 7th June. Many methods of transport were used for a grand picnic and visit to the Magna Carta Memorial and the Air Forces Memorial.  This recalls the Journey made by King John on 10th June 1215 to agree the Articles of Barons. 

The day was a great success, and followed the Basingstoke Canal, River Wey and River Thames. We hope this becomes an enduring trail that can be undertaken in sections; taking in interesting features such as Brookwood Military Cemetery along the way.  The Journey will be available in virtual form for online perusal with full details and reinforcing history.
