Aynho Long Walk 31st August 2017
Rain or shine? No one was quite sure as fourteen of us set off through the village towards Station Road and Millers Lane. As it happened we got some of both, but luckily more sunshine. We crossed the ford and the footbridge and continued along the field edge and under the motorway until we reached Station Road again and crossed to the Great Western and the canal. We followed the canal to Souldern Wharf. Lots of moored long boats but no one cruising along. We crossed the bridge and walked up Wharf Lane to Souldern village in lovely sunshine. The path off to the left around the Aynho side of the village was very overgrown but there were wonderful views across Aynho Park. We were soon on the Portway path and had great views of the deer herds. At our approach they charged off towards Millers Lane.
Back at the pavilion a few of us stopped to enjoy Kathy’s coffee and Ron’s jam tarts, but we would all like Anita back. 6.2 miles.
