Geo-Trips :: Along the A34

Reading

A drive from Alresford, Sat, 25 Aug 2018 by David Howard

preceding legThis trip is part of a series.

This is the second of at least three legs traversing London starting at the A272 in Billingshurst. I wove around most of the A34 so I could follow the route and stop in as many places as possible. There is some remarkable scenery off the main road with steep hills with villages tucked in at the lower parts. The next leg will be from Newbury to Oxford.

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
