Ian Warren — 03 May 2021

Gentle, accessible and mostly tranquil walk connecting the historic market town of Woodstock with the more suburban environment of Kidlington, and including higlights such as Blenhiem Palace and the grave of Sir Winston Churchill in Bladon churchyard. Vehicle traffic is largely avoided except for the crossing of the A44 at Begbroke; the A4095 in Bladon and the A44 approach into Woodstock. The route also uses a railway level crossing on the edge of Kidlington.

    The section between Begbroke and Bladon has two stiles (one partly filled in with brickwork). There is another one between Bladon and Woodstock, which can be avoided by following the main road.
