Aynho Long Walk 17th August 2017
The rain had cleared as eleven of us set off down Portway and under the tunnel to the view across the valley. We walked down to the stream and headed up to the B4100 and across to Upper Aynho Grounds. A very pleasant stretch down through the woods and then we faced the overgrown path up through the Warren Farm woods. We waded through the tall wet grass up to the meadow beyond and continued round the paddock and up Mill Lane to the path behind Croughton village. We took the footpath across to the road and the Reading Room before we headed past the school playing field and across to the back lane that runs through to Croughton. No farm activity this time, just a path through the stubble. We continued through Camp Farm and along the ridge back to Green Lane and the pavilion. Thanks to Kathy for the tea and coffee. We await Anita’s return for the delicious refreshments. 6.2 miles.
