A 6 mile circular walk starting from the Oxfordshire village of New Yatt. The walk includes field paths, riverside paths and some short paved road sections. There are fine views along the way making it well worth exploring this beautiful area.

The walk is relatively flat though there are a few gentle inclines. There are a number of stiles and kissing gates to negotiate on route. You may come across livestock in some of the fields.

The walk starts from the village of New Yatt at the junction of New Yatt Lane and Farm Lane. The approximate post code is OX29 6TG. Street parking available in the village.
