A circular walk around the historic village of Brinklow over fields, roads, and the Oxford Canal plus an optional detour to one of Britain's finest Motte and Bailey castles. The route is mostly level, with a couple of slight inclines on the road sections. There is a set of steps down to the canal, and a set of steps up to Brinklow Castle if you take the detour. The path between Brinklow Castle and Broad Street is narrow, quite steep, uneven and can be muddy. The fields are generally well drained and even after a good rainfall were not muddy, though the canal path can be very muddy in parts. There are a few sheep in the first couple of fields and you will need to negotiate approximately eight kissing gates. There are no facilities on the walk, other than what you can find in Brinklow village.
