A circular walk from the Oxfordshire village of Adderbury, just south of Banbury. The walking route takes you through the pretty village, with its thatched cottages, magnificent church and old manor house, before striking out into the rolling fields. The route takes you past an old weather-boarded windmill and the buildings of Sor Brook Mill, and has lovely views throughout. The walk has several steady gradients but there is nothing too steep. It follows a mixture of roadside pavements, grass tracks and footpaths across grass fields and crop fields. Some sections can become muddy after periods of rain. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates, a footbridge and one stile (this is quite tall, humans will need to stretch, but it has a dog-gate alongside). Most of the fields are arable, but you will cross one field likely to be holding sheep. Allow 1.5 hours.

Really lovely walk (as long as you're wearing the right footwear!) through beautiful open countryside. Saw 2 red kites circling around, which was an added treat. The instructions were absolutely spot on and full of interesting local facts. Loved it, thank you!
