Outline of Expedition

We will drive down early on Tuesday morning, dropping groups at their start points, from where they will walk to the first night's camp-site. Wednesday will be a day's walking on planned routes with an overnight camp. Thursday will hopefully be an early start to enable the planned route to be completed by early afternoon, allowing a timely return to Abingdon/Oxford.
