Getting There

This is a circular walk from the Oxfordshire hamlet of Chilson. The route is along field paths, woodland tracks and quiet country roads. The walk is mostly flat but there is a fairly long uphill section. You will need to negotiate some gates, but there are no stiles or livestock on route. There are no refreshments available directly on the walk, but a short detour can be made to the pub in Ascott-under-Wychwood. There are some fine views over the rolling Cotswold hills. Allow 3 hours.

The walk starts and ends at the small village green in Chilson, approximate post code OX7 3HU. Parking is available by the green. If you are coming by train, Ascott-under-Wychwood rail station is just a 0.3 mile walk from Waypoint 6 on London Lane, so the walk can be adjusted to start and finish there.

The route is ok, some parts are closed in the forest because of work what means not a nice view. Therefore a big part of the trail goes via the road. We were not impressed.

First to Review

Highly recommended. I loved this walk - very easy to follow, gorgeous views and a mix of open fields and woodland. There's fair a bit of road walking but they're all very quiet with wide verges. The junction of London Rd with the B4437 was challenging - cars turning off the B4437 can't easily see pedestrians. Looking at the OS map, there is a footpath that runs parallel to London up to the B4437 - next time I'll use that, cross the road and walk back on the wide verge for 30ft to rejoin the footpath walk.
