Overview

A bus friendly linear walk along the Greenway from the bus stop at Didcot railway station to the bus stop in the marketplace Wantage. Good bus services to Didcot and from Wantage to all major Oxfordshire towns. This walk covers the Greenway walking / cycling route opened during COVID. We leave Didcot via an elevated disused railway line to Upton, then over the Downs to the Harwell Research Campus then pass above the Hendred’s and on to Ardington and finally along part of the Vale Way to Wantage. No stiles, good surfaces and one long slope. Vale Walk Leader JK+PR 07418 078044
