Help connect Charlbury

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 Charlbury’s Slow Ways.

Only access issues are gates and steps (Stonesfield Steps, photo 1) into and within Blenheim Park. Currently (July 2022) a small diversion over the Grand Bridge due to lake dredging at Blenheim, but this affords even better views of the Palace and Park!...
