The Great Shefford, Great Shefford (3.4m)

Pub-Website RG17 7DS SU 384752
About ten miles from Newbury on the Lambourn valley road.
The pub has reopened and changed its name from the Swan. They serve bar snacks amd sandwiches, as well as a full pub/restaurant menu.

Leave the pub and go over the river towards Wantage. Turn L in 100 yds or so into Station Road, then bear R over a small stream, then go L past Mill House. You will come to a FP that runs behind the houses parallel to the Wantage road. Follow this for nearly a mile, until it reaches a farm track. Turn L on this, and follow the FP that bears slightly L towards a point 150 yds to the R of the lowest point of the hedge at the end of the field. The path continues across the next field, crosses one track, and after a mile meets a second. Turn L downhill, go through Maidencourt Farm, and just before meeting the River Lambourn, take the Lambourn Valley Way, that brings you back to Great Shefford and the pub.
