A short circular walk from the church in pretty Wootton, taking you down through the village to the River Glyme. From here take William's Hill up onto Top Lane and along to Long Meadow. Cross the river Glyme again, then back up to the village via Jubilee Meadow. The walk is quite steep either side of the River Glyme, especially William's Hill, with some lovely views. Jubilee Meadow will occasionally have livestock, so take care with dogs. You will need to negotiate several gates but there are no stiles on route. The walk should take around 40 mins.

From Oxford take the A44 signposted Woodstock and Blenheim Palace. Go straight through Woodstock and approximately half a mile out the other side. Take the right turn signposted Wootton and follow the road to the village. Continue down to the River Glyme, then up into the village. The road will take you up to the church (St Mary the Virgin), where there is street parking either on Church Street or Milford Road. Approximate post code OX20 1EB.
