Circular Walk Via Longborough (to the south west) option

18.5 km Circular walk back to Moreton-in-Marsh

Suggested Train: For a later lunch take the train nearest to 8.50am Otherwise for an earlier lunch stop take the train nearest to 10.10 am from London Paddington station to Moreton-in-Marsh. Currently (May 2011) there is a 2 hour gap for the Mon - Sat train service between the train just after 8am and the one just after 10am, necessitating an early start (strongly advisable Oct - April) for the lunch at Broad Campden.
