Aynho Long Walk 7th December 2017
Six intrepid walkers and Reggie set out on the walk today. Soon the rain was heavy, hoods were up and wellies sloshing down Green Lane. The stream was not over the track at the ford, much to our amazement. By the time we had climbed to Souldern the rain had stopped. We took the path from Wharf Lane through to the far end of the village passing forlorn looking horses. By the time we were on the way up to Nancy Bowles Wood and the alpaca field blue streaks were appearing in the sky. We continued out to the Fritwell Road and walked back into Souldern Village. We passed the church and just before the sewage works it was clear that something was to be built in the field. As we continued up the Portway path the sun came out and by the time we arrived back in the pavilion we were in bright sunshine. 5.4 miles.
