October 2018 #2

 

 

The (ex-) Shoulder of Mutton stands in the centre of the isolated hamlet of Owlswick at SP 792064 (#1).  It felt lonelier than ever on a quiet autumn day.

 

 

The green (not always green) lane to Towersey via Ilmer was probably the route taken to Thame Market and could have been part of a much longer stretch because, on the 1880’s 6” map, we found a Coldharbour where the lane crosses the brook at 757050 (#5).  Whatever the truth, it’s a very pleasant walk.

 

 

(#2 & 3 are before Ilmer, #4 is after.)
