Walk Number 16

  • oxfordwalk_bookcover

Having reviewed the book Wild Swimming Walks we thought it about time we tried one out. We have picked Walk number 16 from Shillingford to Didcot described as  an easy 8.5 mile walk “with plenty of opportunities to swim in the River Thames, and optional visits to an Iron Age hill fort and a medieval abbey”.

Swimmers from the Lido will be walking to Didcot

We’ll be meeting outside Paddington Station ticket office at 9:15am on Sunday 16th August to catch the 9:37am train to Reading and from there we take a bus to Shillingford. After the walk we catch the train from Didcot Station and should be back in London by 5pm.

You will need to bring walking gear, swimming costume, towels (2 swimming spots), picnic, lashings of ginger beer and hopefully some sunscreen .

Also, if you are interested in joining our party train ticket please contact us.
