This is a circular walk from the Cotswold village of Stonesfield in Oxfordshire, a hilly village with a history of slate mining. Indeed many of the stone roofing slates used in Oxfordshire, including those on several Oxford Colleges, came from Stonesfield. At the centre of Stonesfield stands the 13th century church of St. James the Great, its bell tower clearly visible above the surrounding buildings. The walk is on field paths and quiet country roads and passes through two Sites of Special Scientific Interest - Stonesfield Common and Stockey Bottom. There are several stiles to negotiate (which have adjacent dog gates), and some fairly steep (but short) sections. There are fine views of the Evenlode Valley on the way. Allow 1.5 hours.
