Getting There

This is a short circular walk around the edge of Pinsley Wood, near the Oxfordshire village of Church Hanborough. The walk is best done in April when the display of bluebells is outstanding. St Peter and St Paul's church in Church Hanborough dates back over 900 years and is a beautiful grade 1 listed building. The walk is flat with no gates or stiles, and there is no livestock on route. The paths can be muddy in winter or after periods of rain.

The walk starts in Church Hanborough at the car park outside the church, directly opposite the village pub (Hand and Shears). The post code is OX29 8AB. The village is served by Bus Number 11 from Oxford city centre.

Very muddy! Bring waders for puddle jumping kids. The mud is deep enough that this wouldn’t be a good choice for under 4’s.

Very muddy at the beginning so we took an alternative way out through the field which was much better.

Very muddy at the start but got better once in the woods. Lots of tracks and options to go off on your own adventure (as we did due to having 3 small children). Will be going there more often in the future.

Lovely walk in the Woods, a little muddy in places after the heavy rain, not a problem with the correct footwear. Look forward to doing it again in the Autumn,

Nice walk a little overgrown with nettles making the path a little narrow in places but passable Little short for my normal walking but wanted to see if it was suitable for 3&4 year olds... which I think it would be a good walk for them so will be back

On a hot day, a nice cool walk in the woods. Easy to follow.

Love these woods we visit here often. Perfect to keep sheltered from the rain. It does get very muddy in the winter. Perfect for dog walking and a track off the route takes you up a path directly next to the hand and shears pub which is dog friendly and amazing food.

Great trail, got a little lost towards the top of the woods, but relatively easy to find your way back. Definitely need downloaded maps for this trail very little signal. Was nice and quiet, lots of pretty little flowers around, and plenty of birds singing.

Nice trail, highly recommend on a hot day lots of shade from the trees. The marked trail keeps you on the edge of the woods which is okay if you want to maximise the distance you walk but I'd recommend using some of the cut through paths. Less overgrowth and you get to appreciate the older taller trees
