The third Leg of the Long Distance path started for us in Long Compton – parking a car in the village hall car park to retrieve later.
We had woken up to sunshine and after a coffee stop in a very friendly bakery in Woodstock were ready to tackle the walk.
We had been very pleasantly surprised by no major traffic issues around Oxford so hoping for the same next time.
The countryside was looking magnificent – bursting with vegetation and wildlife and we appeared to be miles from civilisation for much of the time although in fact we were never very far from a house, village, road or other human contact.
No refreshment options until we reached Chipping Norton but The Old Mill Coffee House and Bistro more than made up for it when we got there. We had a delicious lunch in the garden – fresh water for dogs and yummy food for us.
