Getting There

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.

Adderbury is located about 3 miles south of Banbury in Oxfordshire. The walk starts and finishes outside the small Methodist Church, on the junction between Chapel Lane and the High Street. If you are coming by public transport, the village is served by buses running between Banbury and Oxford. If you are coming by car, there is roadside parking throughout the village. Approximate post code OX17 3LU.

HikingGreat!

Good mix of some really pretty countryside around a charming Oxfordshire village. The length and modest gradient makes it a perfect stroll for the whole family. As mentioned in other reviews the guidance is brilliant with clear direction along with some facts to keep everyone interested.

HikingGreat!

Oh yes yes yes! A stunning walk; a “this our England” type of walk to start my experience of this app. Did it in late July; the highlight is definitely the field of wheat and poppies in the first half of the walk that drops down a long slope; spectacular views here. Later you walk through the centre of a field of peas - my boy is a great foliage eater on these walks, berries and leaves, including ivy - so was in his element. After that comes a field of radishes - thank you PlantSnap.

My dad and I stumbled upon this route by mistake and it was such a good find! We walked from Banbury, so this ended up being a 6/7 mile walk. Would definitely recommend doing!

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!
