Vale Way


43 km / 27 miles
The Vale Way is a new route (2015) through the Vale of White Horse in Oxfordshire. It was devised by the Vale of White Horse Ramblers generally running East to West and connecting the three market towns of Abingdon, Wantage and Faringdon and goes through a number of the larger villages such as Steventon and Stanford in the Vale, as well as other smaller settlements. Geographically it travels from the source of the River Ock to where it flows into the Thames in Abingdon.
