This is a short circular walk around the edge of Pinsley Wood, near the Oxfordshire village of Church Hanborough. The walk is best done in April when the display of bluebells is outstanding. St Peter and St Paul's church in Church Hanborough dates back over 900 years and is a beautiful grade 1 listed building.

The walk is flat with no gates or stiles, and there is no livestock on route. The paths can be muddy in winter or after periods of rain.

The walk starts in Church Hanborough at the car park outside the church, directly opposite the village pub (Hand and Shears). The post code is OX29 8AB. The village is served by Bus Number 11 from Oxford city centre.

I was concerned 2 miles would be too short, however its a perfect walk for a Sunday afternoon stroll. Its a beautiful wood. The bluebells were lovely too.

What a little gem of a walk. Ideal for a young pup, learning to be off lead
