Draycot Foliat

A few hundred yards off the old Ridgeway and about a half hour walk from your Chiseldon B&B is the small hamlet of Draycot Foliat. In addition to houses and farms there is a small Airstrip, if you decided to arrive by plane. There is also a model helicopter instruction centre and frequently model jets are to be seen hurtling over the fields.Draycot_House

The Og, a winter bourne is tributary to the Thames and flows for about half of the year, down the centre of the hamlet forcing the road into a sharp hairpin bend. A short cut is provided by an Anglo Saxon foot bridge which regrettably saw some mid-20th Century “improvements” to its pillars.The_Saxon_Bridge_over_the_Og_Bourne_at_Draycot_Foliat
