Geo-Trips :: Public footpath from Sydenham across Thame Park

Thame Park, Oxfordshire

A walk from Sydenham, Wed, 23 Aug 2017 by David Hawgood

Footpath, stiles and bridges in Thame Park are well maintained, giving a pleasant walk through open parkland grazed by sheep. In August 2017 a small section of the official route near Manor Farm, Sydenham, was overgrown but there was an easy bypass on tracks. Access at the Thame end is onto a busy B-road with no pavement.
