Help connect Burford

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Burford’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

Apart from that this walk is still fine and slightly shorter but follows the main Rd from Burford to Carterton for a while so isn't that nice on that section....

A nice walk avoiding any major roads through the beautiful village of Shilton which is the location of the dog and duck pub from Downton Abbey. The rose and crown pub is a great half way stop. The walk is usually not too muddy unless the has been a recent downpour and the countryside path are very well marked....

Sandsayre added Burcar two, a new walk from Burford to Carterton

Walk this route

Avoid using the B road between Shilton and Carterton as it is a fairly busy road with no footpath and the grass verges are very narrow. The section of the walk between Burford and Shilton is lovely. See Burcar Two which follows this route between Burford and Shilton and has an alternate route between Shilton and Carterton....

These stiles and the kissing gates towards Witney, along with the possibility of mud and some short steep sections render this route unsuitable for wheels....

Walk this route

The short section that's on paths just to the north of Swinbrook isn't wheel-friendly, but the diversion via the road isn't a lot longer, and the roads are similarly quiet....

Mud paths and a stone step style make this not totally accessible. Generally well signposted footpaths....

Walk this route

Nice walk, mostly through fields and woodland, with some walking along very quiet roads. Some of the stiles (especially near Burford) are a little wobbly or under-maintained, so care is advised....
