Getting There

A circular walk near Ashbury in Oxfordshire which provides the opportunity to see a number of ancient sites and monuments along the way including a chalk white horse and an ancient burial chamber. With much of the route following an obvious chalk lane, the walk is relatively easy to navigate. The remainder of the walk crosses fields of grazing sheep so could be muddy after wet weather. There are no stiles and just a gradual climb to the highest point on White Horse hill which provides fabulous views of the surrounding area.

Parking is available in the National Trust White Horse pay and display car park which is near the village of Woolstone and is signed from the B4507 Wantage to Ashbury Road. The car park is free for National Trust members otherwise you'll need some change to pay the appropriate fee. The post code nearby is SN7 7QN, but this will take you to a village north of B4507, so look out for the signs to take you to the National Trust car park to the south of the road.
