The Vale Way

The Vale Way is a 27 mile route through the Vale of White Horse in Oxfordshire, UK. It was divised by the Vale of White Horse Ramblers and had its official launch on Friday 3rd July 2015 in Abingdon.

The Vale Way is some 27 miles long, generally running East to West and connecting the three market towns of Abingdon, Wantage and Faringdon. It also passes through a number of the larger villages such as Steventon and Stanford in the Vale, as well as other smaller settlements. Geographically it travels from the source of the River Ock to where it flows into the Thames in Abingdon but doesn't follow it closely. Two other important Trails or recreational paths in Oxfordshire are connected by the Vale Way, namely, the Thames Path at Abingdon, and the d'Arcy Dalton Way at Longcot. Throughout its length the Vale Way uses existing Public Rights of Way, thus avoiding the lengthy procedure of attempting to establish new paths.
