|This is a 4 mile circular walk from the Cotswold village of Chadlington. The walk includes field paths, woodland and some paved road sections. There are some fine views along the way. The walk is relatively flat but there are a number of stiles to negotiate en route.|
The walk starts from the Church of St Nicholas in the village of Chadlington. Approximate postcode OX7 3BL. Street parking is available in the village.
|Start to Grove Lane|
Start point: 51.8959 lat, -1.5166 long
The walk starts near St Nicholas Church. The church dates to sometime around 1100, but the remnant of a Saxon arch in the nave is evidence of a much older church on the same site. On the east wall of the nave, high above the chancel, is a large carving of a Green Man, with foliage flowing from his mouth. This type of Green Man is what is termed a Tree Nose depiction, because the figure's head is made of leaves while the tree trunk descends to form his nose.
|Grove Lane to Gate|
Start point: 51.8953 lat, -1.507 long
Follow the lane for about half a mile until you reach a bridleway sign on the right. Turn right to join this bridleway.
|Gate to Footbridge|
Start point: 51.8843 lat, -1.523 long
The path goes diagonally across a field to reach a stream and ditch on your left. (If the field is ploughed and muddy it is possible to stay on the road and then go through a metal gate on your right about 200 yards after the first gate and continue down the side of the field).
|Footbridge to End|
Start point: 51.8897 lat, -1.5265 long
Cross the footbridge, go through a metal gate and turn right. Climb over a 3-barred gate with a stepping stone past cottages to reach Bull Hill.

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!
