Circular walks in Cherwell

We have produced a series of circular routes to help you explore the North Oxfordshire countryside and visit nature reserves, learn about wildlife and go walking through woods and along the Oxford canal.

The walk leaflets are having a graphic refresh and, currently, only the Shutford Circular Walk and Village Trail has been republished. However, we hope to republish more of the series as soon as we can.

The routes are checked annually but problems and/or obstructions may arise at any time. So please be aware that there could be hazards along the routes and report any issues to:

Please be aware that during the spring and summer months, paths and waymarks can be obscured by overgrown vegetation making it more difficult to follow the routes. Also, many of the walks take you through fields with livestock. Please follow the advice from the National Farmers Union and Oxfordshire Ramblers about walking through livestock.

The Bloxham circular walks leaflet has been published, and is monitored, by Bloxham Parish Council. To download the leaflet and for route advice, text amendments and updates please visit the Bloxham Parish Council website.

Printed leaflets are also available from various local facilities.
