Help connect Kineton

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 Kineton’s Slow Ways.

The route exits the lovely village of Kineton behind very quickly via an unsealed track with a view of the forthcoming Edge Hill on the horizon (photo 1). The route then takes you up and along the top of Bush Hill. Whilst I haven't done that route for comparison, I did encounter a very muddy section whilst walking along the top of the Bush Hill (photo 10). The route then crosses the plateau of Bush Hill via the D'arcy Dalton Way before descending into pretty Hornton. The route then takes you across arable land before quickly passing through the suburbs of Banbury to the end of the walk. As well as the aforementioned challenges with elevation, the route has plenty of gates, stiles, footbridges and steps to negotiate....

A couple of sections were a tad overgrown, and we had to find an alternative route at one point due to cattle. Having said that, it was a great walk and i'm really glad MikeM came up with this suggested alternative. The route eastwards towards Tysoe is pleasant, and once in the village (approx the halfway point of the walk) there is the option of stopping at the village stores for refreshments. Hopefully they won't always be in that field when you attempt this walk, but it's useful to know an alternative route is available....

Stratford-upon-Avon—Kineton

Apart from some lovely views and scenery, the route takes in an Ancient Monument, some lovely villages, a 16th century mansion, an obelisk and an architectural folly. Perhaps less glamorously, the route also takes you directly past no less than three water treatment sites. The only thing preventing me giving it five stars is the amount of unavoidable road walking involved, as well as crossing the busy Fosse Way and A439. The route then takes you past Brookhampton Farm before a lovely descent into Combrook village. Leaving the village the route takes you back uphill along the road up to the ancient (but fast) Roman Road, the Fosse Way. After Walton Hall, you then go via road through Walton village before crossing the River Dene next to a ford. After leaving the river, the route takes you to the busy A439, which is another busy road that you will need to take care to cross....

There are some lovely little villages on the route, namely Lighthorne & Chesterton. I couldn't find the route from the car park by the Lighthorne Pavillion Cafe. Also, if you're not too bothered with purity of sticking to the exact mapped route, I would recommend taking a diversion from walking the mapped route through Pounce Hill Farm, and take the route over Crown Hill instead....

Hi, I can't comment on walking the route but we've heard that the route is poorly plotted which might make it difficult to follow in places. A fab volunteer is working on tidying up this version and it will be uploaded soon. Thanks for your patience,...

The walk leaves by the B4086 but soon leaves the road to follow footpaths past MOD Kineton ,then on to Gaydon where there is a village shop with refreshments. The path leaves via Bull Ring Farm Road and crosses the Railway Line then follows tracks and footpaths eventually entering Ufton Fields Nature Reserve....

Route finding is straight forward, the only issue is around the MoD base near Kineton. Walking from Banbury to Kineton the route takes an obvious detour from the map path but If walking from Kineton to Banbury you will end stuck as you approach the base boundary. I will suggest adetour around this section....
