A Saturday Snowdrop Saunter, 6 February 2016

Pictures and words by Helen Abbott. This started out as an AAA walk organised by Steve W. for Saturday 6th February 2016 from Stokenchurch, a "training route" taking in 4,400 feet of height in 26.6 miles (with an optional second leg round most of the route again!).

Wychwood Way in 12 hours, 15 March 2014

AAA walk - 15th March 2014. Comments from our walkers:- "Thoroughly enjoyed the day" "The countryside was unnaturally deserted." "The waymarks were somewhere between intermittent, non-existent and illegible. The clearest marker was hidden in a hedge." "All day without seeing Didcot Power Station…

Christmas Walk & Lunch, 14 December 2008

A personal memoir. It was 8:50 as I turned into the Pink & Lily car park and already there were some eight to ten cars with their boots and doors open as people got kitted up for the walk. It was grey and cold – only three degrees – and a lurid orange strip above the southern horizon was the…

Roaming on the Flats, 22 June 2008

Gerry promised a flat-ish walk, and he gave us just that. A series of picture-postcard villages on the Oxford plain north of the Chilterns reminded us that we ought to come out this way more often. We were waylaid early in the day by the Vicar in Pyrton who invited us to organise a walk through the…

Where Spring Comes Late, April 2008
