Aynho Long Walk 14 December 2017
Seven Long walkers set off this morning as the thaw took hold. The Portway path was a mixture of mud and slush, as was the field below, but the sun was bright and the views a real pleasure as we continued across the next field, over the stream and across to Upper Aynho Grounds. The drive up to the Old Barn was busy, no doubt for an event but we continued past the buildings and down through the woods and up the other side into Warren Farm. No sign of stock as we reached Mill Lane but in the field behind Croughton there were some winter coated horses. We passed through the village, avoiding the dustcart and crossed the fields to Cut-Throat Corner, Camp Farm, Rainsborough Camp and on to the Charlton Road. Back at the pavilion Dawn had few takers for her refreshments as so few walkers had braved the conditions. 6.4 miles.
