Getting There

This is a circular walk from Shipton-Under-Wychwood, Oxfordshire. The return section of the walk passes Bruern Abbey, the site of a Cistercian Abbey founded in 1147 by Nicholas Basset. The abbey was dissolved in 1536 and became the property of Sir Anthony Cope of Hanwell, Oxfordshire. In 1720 a baroque country house was built for the Cope family on the site of the former abbey. The walk is generally flat although there are a number of stiles and kissing gates to negotiate. Part of the walk uses a public footpath across Lyneham golf course, so take particular care on this stretch.

The walk starts on Meadow Lane, Shipton-under-Wychwood. The approximate postcode is OX7 6BW. Roadside car parking is available. Alternatively, rail travellers can walk from Shipton Station via Station Road to the start.
