Track simplification

I did this track in Oct 2010 but just logging it now so description is whooly in places. Its a bit of a treck from Swindon but worth the mileage.
Starting from the car park location on the B4494 its along the ridgeway past the monument then turn west back tracking almost to turn right (north) down an endless downhill that just goes and goes ending in East  Lockinge. Its flat going all the way through some tranquil byway to Upton (vague recollection of  section).
Be careful to pick up the correct byway out of Upton not the footpath, which I didnt and got lost making a right hash of things, so I have patched up the waypoints along that track part between Upton and Prospect Farm but its an uknown section.
Under the A34 then downhill past the gallops then over the side road is the start of a lovely tree canopied rough track section. My mind goes blank after this point as I was getting knackered other than it being alot of up and downhill sections so please fill in the blanks back to the carpark. I do however remember getting back totally shattered after 21 miles so had a kip in the car !.
