50 Walks in Oxfordshire

50 Walks in Oxfordshire

by: Nick Channer and Ann F Stonehouse
Oxfordshire enjoys a rich heritage and surprisingly varied scenery. Its landscape encompasses open chalk downland and glorious beech woods, picturesque rivers and attractive villages set in peaceful farmland. In the south west the county meets Berkshire on the high downs and here there are far reaching vistas and fascinating links with the ancient past. To the south east lie the Chilterns with their steep scarps and tree-clad hills. The north east by comparison seems more isolated with its broad views, undulating landscape and dry stone walls.

This well-established guide explores the best of Oxfordshire countryside. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. Together they provide a balanced appreciation of Oxfordshire's character. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour detailed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel and then a section with interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments.
