Aynho Long Walk 30 November 2017
On a cold frosty morning eighteen of us set out in the sunshine down Green Lane, at the approach to Lower Walton Grounds we turned right and followed the track along the valley. We crunched the ice on the many large puddles until we left the track and entered the next field. We continued along field edges until we reached the various paths into Charlton. As usual we climbed to the old stone pits and walked through towards the school. On the way we passed the herd of long horned cows, not seen there for many months. They chose to stay in the sun and watched us from afar. We continued down through the village and back up through the Rainsborough Camp. As the path at the top of the ridge is closed off at Green Lane we took the bridleway down to Charlton Road and walked back to the Pavilion along the road. On such a cold day we were delighted by a friendly welcome and a warm drink. The mince pies were nice too. 5.2 miles.
