This walk starts at the car park in Watlington Town Centre and is approximately 6 miles. It is a relatively easy walk with no steep climbs taking you through the lovely villages of Lewknor and Pyrton at the foot of the Chilterns Escarpment.
From Watlington we will head along the Ridgeway national trail to the Village of Lewknor.
At the centre of the village is the remnants of Town Pond which used to produce watercress which was transported to London daily by train.
The walk then continues onto Pyrton, a tiny remote village with some 50 houses mostly built of brick and flint and thatched roofs. Here we will pass St Marys Church which dates back to 1856 and the grounds are awash with daffodils in the spring time.
We then head back into Watlington for a well earned drink.
This walk should take approximately 3 hours.
It is not really suitable for dogs as there maybe livestock in some of the fields and there are several styles some of which have barbed wire on them to prevent dogs entering.
Should the Weather forecast be for rain the walk will be postponed. I will Check the forcast and confirm the evening prior to the walk. I will also email my mobile number in case attendees need to contact me on the day.
Thank you and see you there
