Day 2

Oving Church

We were given a lift to the church at Wing and we were walking by 09:15. It was a lot warmer today, we were glad we had the courage to walk without carrying our coats.

We missed the path a few times today, which highlights the need to carry an OS map as well as the guide. As yesterday, we used OS maps on the phone.

The morning’s walk ended at The Black Boy PH in Oving. This community owned pub boasts spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

From Oving, we walked to North Marston where we ate our packed lunch by the village pond. The walk is proving to be a demonstration of beautiful Buckinghamshire villages.

During the afternoon we saw many Red Kite overhead.

The views from Quainton Hill are quite impressive.

We arrived at The Long Dog PH (Waddesdon) by 16:45. That completes 31 miles of the walk, well over half way.
