Day 4

We were back to yesterday’s end point and walking by around 9:00am.

The path was generally well signed, but today we came across a sign pointing the wrong way. Our hesitancy made us ask some other walkers for orientation. They weren’t aware of the O.A.R. but gave us enough confidence to ignore the sign and be thankful for our map!

There is a huge amount of house building going on in this area; quite different to the situation in our own home town.

Once again, today’s weather is warm; sun hat and glasses with no need for coats and layers. Much of today’s walk was spent in the Chilterns and used the Ridgeway LDP. It was beautiful walking with fantastic views. There were many Red Kite to be seen in the air today.

We enjoyed a pint in The Plough PH in Lower Cadsdean before looking for a lunch stop in the shade.

The monument at Combe Hill was particularly busy with tourists.

We arrived in Wendover, the end of our walk, and were in The Red Lion PH by 4:30pm.  

Today, we came across some walkers walking The Ridgeway using Contour Holidays. A lot of the OAR uses other LDPs: South Bucks Way, Thane Valley Walk, Mathew’s Way, Swan Way and, of course, The Ridgeway.
