The Ridgeway: Day 7: Tring to Ivinghoe Beacon

The Ridgeway National Trail from Avebury to Ivinghoe Beacon is 87 miles and I left the last four or so, between Tring Station and Ivinghoe itself to complete early one morning.  I walked the Ridgeway over the course of six days but because I was about to finish it on a busy Saturday and the…

The Ridgeway: Day 6 – Princes Risborough to Tring Station

  It was difficult to believe I was nearing the end of my journey along the Ridgeway National Trail.  The walking from Princes Risborough to Wendover was varied and interesting, challenging but rewarding. Day Six of the Ridgeway Trail started from the Whiteleaf Cross Car Park just outside Princes Risborough.  The lovely T dropped me off…

The Ridgeway – Day Five: Watlington to Princes Risborough

  DAY FIVE – THE RIDGEWAY Sometimes when out walking, as in day five of walking  the Ridgeway National Trail from Watlington to Princes Risborough, I just plod.  This relatively short day held nothing particularly physically demanding and nothing mentally challenging.  I had by now settled into an easy rhythm of walking each day and…

The Ridgeway: Day Four – Streatley to Watlington

The Ridgeway – Goring and Streatley: Was it all a dream?

      I had spent three days in the unexpectedly lonely and secluded open countryside walking the Ridgeway National Trail when I finally arrived at Goring and Streatley.  Perhaps it was good that after such seclusion I was not jolted straight back into 21st Century industrial estates, shopping malls and housing estates.  Maybe it was a…

The Ridgeway – Day Three

The Ridgeway Day Three – Wantage to Goring and Streatley   Well-rested after Day Two of Walking the Ridgeway and well-satiated by a filling breakfast and with lovely memories to treasure I re-packed my rucksack and set off in the early morning mist from The Court Hill Centre to begin Day Three of my Ridgeway…

The Ridgeway – Accommodation and Where to Stay

  In August 2015 I walked the Ridgeway National Trail solo.  It was quite a challenge for me organising and walking the trail independently and alone.  I thought it might be useful to list the sources I found helpful when sorting out my accommodation: Sources to Search I started with the Ridgeway National Trail Website…
