A circular walk from the small village of Stonor (formerly known as Upper Assendon) in Oxfordshire. The walk climbs through the pretty Almshill Wood and then follows a quiet country lane to reach the Stonor Estate. The return leg follows the path through the heart of Stonor Park, a beautiful deer park, to return to the village. You will have chance to enjoy lovely views across the surrounding Chiltern Hills, to appreciate the woodland flowers in the spring and to learn about the fascinating history of Stonor House. The walk has one very steep climb at the beginning and then a long steady descent for the second half. About 1.5 miles of the walk follows a quiet country access lane so take care of any occasional traffic on this stretch. You will need to negotiate two stiles (both with large gaps underneath for dogs to pass through) plus three kissing gates. There may be cattle in the first short field that you cross (although there weren't any livestock there when we walked) and the return leg follows a long path through a deer park. For your own safety it is sensible to avoid taking dogs through deer parks during the rutting and birthing seasons. The woodland/park paths are fairly firm but can get muddy in winter and after periods of rain. Approximate time 1.5 hours.
