Getting There

This circular walk falls into three parts, all roughly the same length. The first part is characterised by fieldside footpath walking and includes a moment passing through a farmyard, whilst the third part involves a climb uphill along made up driveway, but still through countryside. It is the middle part that is the star of the show though, as you walk alongside different branches of the sleepy River Thame, ending up at the entrance to Eythorpe Park. This section positively cries out for a rug and a picnic, or maybe a book, to while away a sunny afternoon doing nothing in particular. The walk covers around four miles and takes about eighty minutes of walking. Unless it has been exceptionally dry, walking boots are recommended.

Stone sits on the A418 between Aylesbury and Thame, both of which are served by the Chiltern Line. Park either in the layby on the A418 outside Stone Village Hall (HP17 8PB) or in Eythorpe Road opposite the starting point.

Nice walk overall, some good views and pleasant paths through fields (with cows), couple of bridges and attractive houses. Route map was spot on and easy to navigate, the only part we didn’t enjoy as much was walking back along Eythrope Rd (where we parked) which was uphill and not as interesting, but I guess you could walk down that way first

Easy to follow with great views by the river. Undulating but not challenging. Recommended. 7km thereabouts, parking in a nearby residential street.

Fantastic walk. Slightly longer then the route says. It’s 5.5 miles but really really pretty. Few cows about to be aware of for dogs.

Lovely walk around the river, dog friendly seems to be well maintained as well. Will be doing this walk again

A lovely walk after a bland start - well worth it for the many beautiful stretches of river. Mainly easy-to-follow (leave the lone tree to your left in the middle of the field in section no. 2). Will repeat with appropriate footwear for the likely muddy matches in winter.
