I'm taking myself off the list.  Exploding computer syndrome has left me on massive catch up and so I've got to work on Monday to heal deadline syndrome.

Have fun everyone

and some more directions just in case anyone gets a bit lost

Travelling North M40 come off at Junc 5

Turn Right onto A40 back across the M40

Turn left onto A40 heading towards Aston Rowant and Postcombe (ie Northbound)

I am unsure what Junc 5 is like coming off but in theory you are picking up the A40 in the same direction as the M40 you have just left

As you approach Aston Woods there is a turning on the left hand side about .70 of a mile from the motorway, this should be Hill Road (unsure if it is marked) and will have Hill Farm Cottage at the junction

Follow this road back across the M40 and through the woods, you go through a left hand bend and Cowleaze Woods is on your left hand side with a carpark after almost 2 miles.

The road off the A40 to Cowleaze in effect will take you to Christmas Common and if you get here then you have gone too far!

Postcode OX49 5HU will take you just beyond the car park

Hope this helps!!

and in true spirit I have also been looking at the paths on the map and seemingly The Ridgeway may be difficult to find ...

We need to take the Icknield way south I think and hoping to get down to Grims Ditch  .... but what do I know, we'll do and out and back and find a pub !!

It'll be grim for you if there's no pub or lunch!!!
