Description

Oxford-Brill One is OK, but meanders a lot, taking in the Cherwell river path, which can flood. I've added this route which is more direct, while still sticking to the guidelines. It's the same as Oxford-Brill One for the first 2km or so (up to the University Parks), and the second half (from Beckley to Brill)

Surveys

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.

Since the majority of this route is the same as Oxfbri one, a lot of the comments are the same as well.

Definitely not one for wheels - there are several stiles, particularly nearer Brill, and the path is frequently muddy, even in summer.

Starting from Brill, there are impressive views, including the TV mast at Beckley, marking the approximate half-way point of the route.

The terrain is relatively flat, which means that the occasional hills come as a bit of a shock. But none of them are too steep or too long. On the subject of shocks, there's a shooting range just on the Brill side of the M40 - do obey the signs to stay away!

Shops are available in Brill itself, in Oakley, and the Oxford area. Beckley has the Abingdon Arms, which is a pleasant community run pub.

The churchyard at Elsfield is the last resting place of John Buchan, author of 'The Thirty-Nine Steps' and one-time Governor-General of Canada. As you head out from Elsfield downhill towards Oxford, the odd doubling-back is required to cross a ditch, before you head to the Oxford Ring Road (where there are traffic lights, so you can cross safely). The route then takes a reasonably green path into Oxford City itself.
