The Swan, Compton (4.5m)

(No-usable-website) RG20 6NJ SU 521799
About eleven miles from Newbury via the A34 which turn off SP Compton and East Ilsley, and bear L in East Ilsley to reach Compton in two miles.
After being called the Foinavon for some years, it has reverted to the Swan. A largish pub/hotel, it provides a good menu every day, with a very good-value Seniors' lunch Mondays through Wednesdays.

Go L out of the pub up Horn St and R at the T juction into Wallngford Rd. At the end, go under the (disused) railway bridge and turn R then bend L for about 900 yds to Crowfoot. Take the L path for 1400yds to join the Ridgeway, which follow W for some 1500yds. Just after recrossing the railway, turn L onto a wide ride towards Compton. After about 700yds your path diverges half R across arable land then turns slightly L beside the ride back into the village. Keep SO to rejoin the main street to find the pub.
