White Horse

King Sutton is a popular stop for us on this canal and for many others but on this occasion we had the bank to ourselves for most of our time here, we stayed for the weekend.

KS although close to the canal has no convenient route to it, the river Cherwell blocks access. As it was Friday I fancied a walk into the village for a glass of ale in the White Horse which is located across the village green from the church with landmark spire.

That's FL moored and the spire in the distance
To get there it's a stroll back along the canal to Twyford bridge  and along the road to the pub about a two mile detour. There is a footpath through fields from the road but today the farmer was working the field with two tractors so I stuck to tarmac.

Chiltern railway serves the village with routes to London Birmingham and Oxford.

Just the ticket
