Activity

This is a 10 mile linear walk through the Oxfordshire Cotswolds visiting several delightful stone villages and two historic Cotswold towns. The route starts from the very scenic town of Charlbury with its wonderfully preserved Brunel designed GWR railway station. We continue via the River Evenlode; its soft, easy hills and fertile countryside inspired Tolkien's Hobbit Shire. We take in part of Akeman Street, the old Roman road from Cirencester to St Albans, plus Lord Rotherwick's deer park, Cornbury Park. After visiting Finstock, Ramsden and Hailey villages we can detour to view the romantic ruins of Minster Lovell and historic village by Windrush Valley. Then our walk ends at the prosperous market town of Witney. This has riverside meadows with fine stone mansions and a lovely church green at the centre lined with inns and tea shops for tiffin. We then proceed to Oxford via the frequent bus service.

Event is restricted to 12 participants due to current government guidance. This is based on 2 separate groups of up to 6 participants each, the second group having an assistant leader and following the first group at a short distance. Please book your place using Book Now button below.
