A circular walk from the Cotswold town of Faringdon. The walk passes the striking local landmark of Faringdon Folly, built by Lord Berners in 1935 and gifted to Faringdon in 1983, and later passes through the small village of Littleworth. The walk is along field paths, which can be muddy in wet weather, and small lanes. The terrain is mostly flat but with some gentle inclines. There are a number of stiles and kissing gates along the route. The final stage of the walk affords fine views to the north-west.
