Reputedly England’s smallest town, Watlington has a very long history and offers striking architecture and an interesting selection of independent shops and services.

It is the heartland of the re-introduced Red Kites and many of these large and distinctive birds of prey can be seen flying around.

Watlington is situated 45 miles to the West of London in Oxfordshire, very close to the Chilterns, one of England’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The famous Watlington White Mark can be seen carved out of the chalk on Watlington Hill which is formed from part of the scarp slope rising above the town. It forms a triangle and rumour has it that it was created in 1764 by the local squire who was ashamed that the parish church didn’t have a spire!

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
