Swyncombe with Henley and Goring Ramblers – 10th October, 2019

We parked (as last year for a regional ramble) at Ewelme Park Farm, with the kind permission of the owner, Michael Colston, who was quite happy to have us back again.

Ewelme consists of some beautiful old buildings which go back to before the time of Henry VIII; it was originally a monastery but Henry wanted it as his hunting lodge, and as we know, he usually got what he wanted.

This ramble was extremely varied in scenery, with some fabulous views of rolling Oxfordshire farmland and the Ridgeway as well as some woodland paths.

Unbelievably the same member who had battery trouble on Monday experienced the same issue with a loan Tramper on this ramble ; the scooter towing then began to struggle as well but luckily we were close enough to our endpoint for another loan scooter to be fetched for the final small section.

We were very lucky to be accompanied yet again by Alie and colleagues from Henley Ramblers who have done a great deal to help develop suitable rambles in this area. Lucy
