Geo-Trips :: East to west by the Severn

Slimbridge

A drive from Wallingford, Sat, 28 Jul 2018 by David Howard

Aiming for a unique (by now anyway) pre-Worboys warning sign, I crossed Britain from east to west, and as usual tried to circle the area rather than just go there and back to cover more ground. The M40/A40 is a very easy road and rarely get the slightest slowdown besides a mile on the Oxford Ring Road. It was late spring so had plenty of hours of daylight and was able to take photos back to Oxford on the return leg.

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. ( )
