We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

This route doesn't measure up to the other Slow Ways I have walked so wouldn't recommend it. I encountered the first problem in the second field after the M40, where an uncapped spring flooded the poached-up ground; I detoured through Overthorpe and found there was no access to the path from the road at the other end; these issues have been reported to West Northamptonshire Council. The entry to Brackley is barred by a housing estate under construction; the "path" is diverted between barriers so one can pick one's way through rubbish and nettles. I accept these may be temporary issues. There is a huge proportion of road walking on this route, but that said, the only problematic stretch is the main road leaving Fathinghoe; consequently, navigation is straightforward. The views of the Cherwell valley are superb, and Thenford and Hinton-in-the-Hedges are both exceedingly pretty villages; Thenford House and gardens were the highlight for me.

Full discloure - I suggested this route. It's the same as Banbra one close to Brackey, but then takes a different route going to Banbury. It uses a high propotion of bridleways, generally with good access (for the able bodied) and has no substantial periods on A roads with no pavements. It goes via Middleton Cheney, which is a good place to rest (having benches as a shop) and also via Thenford House and gardens.
