|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.
|Start to Sharp right - Chiltern way|
Start point: 51.6155 lat, -1.0653 long
From the recreation ground (cow common) car park, cross the road (to the grass triangle) and take Parson’s Road towards the church.
|Sharp right - Chiltern way to Road|
Start point: 51.6171 lat, -1.0664 long
After approximately 150 yards take the sharp right, signed footpath(Chiltern way). Pass through brush-land and then a narrow track until the path opens up to the pig fields. Continue walking through the fields, down the hill to the road.
|Road to Into cropped field|
Start point: 51.6162 lat, -1.0488 long
At the bottom of the hill, turn left onto the road (following sign for Chiltern Way) and continue for approx. 200 yards. Go over a small hump in the road and a slight bend.
|Into cropped field to Crossroads|
Start point: 51.6168 lat, -1.0407 long
Take the signed Bridleway on the right (please note this sign post is quite hidden). This path leads straight into the edge of a cropped field. Follow the path along the left hand field edge and continue where the path switches to the right hand field edge. At the first cross roads of paths, continue straight on.
|Crossroads to Farm|
Start point: 51.6036 lat, -1.0481 long
At the next cross roads turn right (blue arrow marking bridleway) and follow the path along the field edge, keeping the hedges on the left. At the top of the hill ignore the path on the right and continue straight on. At the T-junction with the farm barns in front of you, turn right.
|Farm to End of Right Fence|
Start point: 51.6045 lat, -1.0563 long
At the end of track follow the signposted footpath between two large hedgerows/trees. Follow this path for some time crossing a road and continue to follow the bridleway. Cross over the gated disused quarry and continue straight on, crossing another road.
|End of Right Fence to Corner of field|
Start point: 51.6144 lat, -1.0731 long
About 150 yards past the second road crossing turn right at the path crossroads, where the right hand fence finishes. Follow the path down to the corner of the field.
|Corner of field to End|
Start point: 51.617 lat, -1.0712 long
In the corner, find a narrow footpath downhill between gardens and follow down to the road (Ewelme high street). Turn right onto the road and walk back to the car park. On the way back to the car park you will pass Ewelme Primary School which is reputed to be the oldest in England.

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
