Thames Path : Newbridge to Radcot
The 2018 walking season starts with a challenge – getting to the start of the walk at Newbridge at returning from the end at Radcot are very tricky using public transport. Newbridge is not too bad as there is a bus service every now and then, but the T01 at Radcot is once a week on a Tuesday, so that pretty much rules out buses at the end. With a need to complete the walk quickly (as it’s a 3 hour journey from home to the start and a 3 hour return), I opted for the easy option of a taxi at both ends. From Oxford station, there were plenty to choose from but at Radcot, every company I called was not available except for the nice people at A1 Swindon Taxis, who located a driver and managed to pick me up from this remote spot without too much hassle – many thanks! The walk started with a taxi from Oxford to Newbridge and ended with a taxi from Radcot bridge to Swindon.
