Barnes Mill Pond

Walk 7: Barnes Mill Pond. July. Oxfordshire

Barnes Mill Pond

Walking Diary: The Ridgeway runs through the graveyard of the Church of St. Mary in North Stoke. It was built in the 1230s and inside I see some beautiful 14th century paintings. I walk through this pretty village and enjoyed the green canopy surrounding the small pond which used to be part of an impressive working mill. The water is still and the reflections from the young trees make this a peaceful haven. I walk on through the grounds of the Springs Hotel Golf Course and end just on the outskirts of the Market town of Wallingford where I was born.
