Excellent day’s walking courtesy of Thames Valley Long Distance Walkers’ Association.   The south Chilterns to the west of Henley were looking their best with fine autumn colours still on the beech trees.   Passed through the grounds of Grey’s Court National Trust property on the way – worth a return visit at some point.   Occasional sun early in the day but mostly a bit drizzly with some low cloud, but still with some good views (including Didcot power station – which is seemingly visible from wherever you are in the Chilterns!).   Sandwich lunch in the churchyard at Checkendon.   A few pubs in en route but very few shops so pre-packed lunch a necessity.   Started at 9 am and finished just as it was getting dark around 4:15pm.   A really enjoyable day out.
