Chiltern Chase

There will be parking available “above” Cow Common in a field on the approach to Ewelme from “hour glass corner” / Clacks Lane. From the car park Cow Common is a short downhill walk through a field and a couple of kissing gates. Those of you combining the Chiltern Chase with your first date, this is your time. Car park will open at 7:30am.

For Satellite Navigation: Use Post Code OX10 6HQ (The postcode may take you outside Ewelme School. There will be blue signs to guide you to the car park from there.)
