|First it's 0.3 miles from the end of Kings Lane along the A420 to get back onto the D'Arcy Dalton Way. You go down a lane and cross some fields to get to Longcot, and after Longcot the route first goes under the Didcot to Swindon railway line and then (at about 2.8 miles from the A420) it crosses the line of the Wiltshire and Berkshire Canal. There's water in bits of this Canal but probably not at this point. (The last day of this route visits 10 miles of this Canal.) From here, it's 3.5 miles via Compton Beauchamp to Wayland's Smithy. And this is where the D'Arcy Dalton Way ends. The route I've chosen from here goes along the Ridgeway first visiting the White Horse. At 344851, leave the Ridgeway along the B4001 and then down Middleway Bottom to get to Childrey (the nearest place that has a bus stop). There's also a pub there!||
