This is a circular walk from the pretty village of Ewelme venturing into the Chilterns countryside.

The walk follows footpaths and bridleways, some of which can get quite muddy in the winter and after wet weather so good waterproof boots are recommended at these times. There are a few steady climbs and descents with no stiles or gates. Please note that at the start of the walk you will pass fields containing pigs. Take care with children and dogs around the electric fences.

This walk starts from Cow Common Recreation Ground (at the top of Ewelme high street) approximate post code is OX10 6PG.
