East Hendred, for some reason, inexplicable even to myself, this is one of my favourite villages. I used to cycle there with friends when I was a teenager.
The park is small, awkward to get to if you arrive at the wrong time (we arrived just as both schools were coming out), and you're not supposed to park in the village hall car park (I did, nothing happened).
You get to East Hendred from the Reading Road - the A417 - from Harwell to Wantage, the same road you turn off to get to Ardington and West Hendred. There are two ways into East Hendred, and it really is quite a tentacular village so it's probably best to look at the map. However, if you find Church Street, drive passed St Augustine's Church, follow the road right and continue up the road. You will see Snell's Hall in front of you. The park is in a little dip, is a little bit 'squashed' but has everything there (except a fireman's pole and a zip wire, but you can't have everything).
Find this park on the google map I made for you.
Nice view from the park
