Walk on 21st May 19 Faringdon, Radcot and Littleworth – 7 Miles

18 members gathered at the car park, on a lovely sunny and warm morning ready to drive to Faringdon. Stephen was waiting for us at Faringdon; Mike and Alan left us to do a shorter walk.  Early on into the walk the views were spectacular with an outlook stretching miles.  We made our way over well marked footpaths across several fields until we reached a road, this was the first part of road walking.  Leaving the road, we walked over several more fields until we came to The Thames, we chose not to walk to Radcot Bridge as we would have needed to retrace our footsteps back again.  By the time we reached Radcot Lock we were all ready for lunch.  We spent a peaceful half hour eating our lunch and then set off again.  Unfortunately, the next part of the walk was on a quite road, and was about 1.75 miles long and undulating.  Leaving the road, we were back to seeing panoramic views again.  We had walked approximately 8 miles by the time we arrived back at our cars. We were lucky enough to see families of ducks and geese swimming on the Thames, and  3 herons. Some of the fields looked a picture covered in buttercups and dandelion clocks.  We normally have a fly past of some type of aeroplane, and at one point had 3 all in a row. Thank you to the car drivers.  Our next long walk is on 18th June at Snowshill.  Pam
