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.

A lovely walk with great views - climbs over a few gentle hills. It’s mostly open fields and some villages. Depending on weather, could be wet and muddy in some fields and near streams. There is a flight of steps near Brailles (on Shipston side) - photo attached. Quite a few stiles. 

We walked along the quiet road from the church into Winderton as we missed the footpath - we were told that it’s passable but not very well signed and rarely used due to livestock and often being wet underfoot. Leaving Winderton, we followed the Slow Ways route up a track but the official footpath might have been slightly further on as we noticed a nearby stile when we got into the fields.

We didn’t walk the Epwell to Shutford track as we wanted to avoid walking along the road to North Newington (it can be busy and doesn’t have a verge to walk on). Instead it’s much nicer to head from Epwell on the bridleway which goes via the roman road next to Madmarston Hill and follows NCN 5 cycle route to Fulling Mill farm. Just past Fulling Mill there is a footpath on your right into a field which leads into the grounds of Broughton Castle with views of the castle and its moat. From here head to North Newington and rejoin the Slow Ways route. 

An alternative route into Banbury from Broughton Castle / North Newington is to head down to the Broughton Road part-way along and there is a footpath alongside Broughton Road which continues all the way to Banbury Cross and into the town centre. 

Food shops in Shipston, Brailles and Banbury and pubs in most villages (opening times vary). 

The only reason for not giving this route more stars is the road part Shutford to North Newington but otherwise it’s a fantastic route.
