Wednesday 6th September
Today’s plan to visit the town of Burford (located on the edge of the Cotswolds) were thwarted when I found the Charney Bassett to Buckland road was closed due to major roadworks. Not wishing to follow the recommended diversion onto the very busy A420, I chose to change plans and head for Buscot Wick. I’ve never been there before in fact I only found out about it when perusing my county map the other day.
Love the tower on this Uffington church.
After 20 miles it was time to stop at this restored village water pump in Fernham.
Thatched cottages in Little Coxwell, including roof art, looks very much like a wild boar.
12th century church, Great Coxwell.
This is the first time I have visited the Great Coxwell Tithe Barn since my father in laws memorial ride in mid January.
Never tire of looking at this special building.
Great stone wall with huge buttresses, in Coleshill.
Finally I get to Buscot Wick, which turned out rather as expected, a few large houses behind high hedges and random farm buildings.
Rather imposing entrance gate house to Buscot Park.
Unusual building in Faringdon’s main square.
From here it was back on familiar roads to Clanfield and Bampton and the other settlements that have already been Quested.
I managed to visit a total of 8 places to add to my county Quest list.
Distance – 69 miles.
Journey – Solo.
Bike – Spa Audax.
