Friday 30th September
Kings Lane (Longcot)
Ridgeway 233 metres
Ridgeway 203 metres
Middleway Bottom 142 metres
First it's 0.3 miles from the end of Kings Lane
along the A420 to get back onto
the D'Arcy Dalton Way.
You go down a lane and cross some fields to get to Longcot,
the route first goes under the Didcot to
Swindon railway line
(at about 2.8 miles from the A420)
it crosses the line of
the Wiltshire and Berkshire Canal.
There's water in bits of this Canal
but probably not at this point.
(The last day of this route visits
10 miles of this Canal.)
From here, it's 3.5 miles
via Compton Beauchamp
to Wayland's Smithy.
And this is where the D'Arcy Dalton Way ends.
The route I've chosen from here
goes along the Ridgeway
first visiting the White Horse.
At 344851, leave the Ridgeway
along the B4001
and then down Middleway Bottom
to get to Childrey
(the nearest place that has a bus stop).
There's also a pub there!
