About an 80m elevation gain but over a long period. The walk is a mixture of tow path, footpaths across fields and paved roads


Leaving the village of Souldern we head down hill passing underneath the M40, getting our first glimpse of the railway viaduct that cuts across the fields.   Continuing our walk we head over a pull down canal bridge and walk alongside the Oxford Canal passing the village of Somerton

From here we walk back up the hill, crossing two railway lines and heading passed the former RAF Upper Heyford and into the village of Fritwell.   Leaving Fritwell we this time cross over the top of the M40 before heading back into Souldern and a well earned drink at the Fox Inn.

Route details: 

The walk is a combination of canal paths, field side footpaths, village pavements and some hard surface paths and a couple hills but with a gentle climb.


Time walking: approx 4-5hours. 


Don't waste that space!

Early Spring walks get busy so please only book if you know you can make it. If your plans change please free up the space for someone else.

Is it dog friendly? 

Dogs are welcome on the walk, but please abide by the Countryside Code ( Please also remember not everyone loves dogs as much as you do so please be mindful of other members.
