Swan's head in horseshoe on named discsSwan's Way

106 km / 66 miles

Bucks, Milton K, Northants, Oxon
From the Northants border the route crosses the Vale of Aylesbury to meet the Ridgeway near Princes Risborough and then follows the chalk slopes of the Chilterns to the Thames at Goring. There is a link with the Cross Bucks Way at Swanbourne.

The Judge's Ride (16 miles), coincident for short sections with the Swan's Way and the Ridgeway, provides a link to such as Stoke Row, the location of the Maharajah's Well.
