Let Them Eat Cake - Thurs 24th March 2016


Leader: DFH

Boddington Reservoir – The Twistle, Byfield – mid-morning break in pocket park on the former Great Central Railway - Eydon –– lunch at Chipping Warden (in the Griffin or the bus shelter). The afternoon took us on field paths, over the Oxford Canal, through Claydon, back over the canal to Lower Boddington and on to finish alongside the reservoir.

Lots of lovely local stone buildings, lots of daffodils.  A bit cloudy and damp, but not as much rain as we had expected, and much less mud than the recce.

Thanks to Mary for planning a walk in a new area, including a venture into Oxfordshire, and to Dave for being a great substitute leader.

16 walkers, just over 16 miles.
