Come and join us for a day walk following the River Thames from Oxford to Farmoor reservoir. From the station, we'll walk up through Harcourt hill, then Chawley and Cumnor before reaching Farmoor reservoir. From there, we will follow the River Thames towards Wytham Great wood and back to Port Meadow, one of the cities most iconic area. For over 4,000 years this ancient land has been used for grazing, ploughing and farming. 

It's said that in Port Meadow was given to the freemen of Oxford in defence of the country from the Danes in the 10th century and has remained a centre piece in Oxford history every since. 

The walk is a pleasant day walk which should take us around 6 hours including a trip to a local pub. 

We look forward to seeing you on what should be a brilliant Spring Day walk.
