off the turkey, we decided to try and bag a confluence!
Arriving in Buckingham at lunchtime, we found a path leading in the
general direction of the confluence beside an industrial estate. The
path led us to a small wood where we soon found our progress blocked by
a river! (Who didn't read the map right, then?). So, we went back onto
the road to see if there was a bridge in the industrial estate over the
river, but there was none. So, back to the car and the map contained

After the victory dance and associated photos, we made our way back to
the road in search of food, as it was now past lunch hour. Our way back
took us past a rather confused and bemused worker in the animal feeds
place! We offered him a "good afternoon" and made a beeline for the
safety of the car!
