Kiddiwalks in Oxfordshire

Kiddiwalks in Oxfordshire

by: Ruth Paley
Here is a full colour book of twenty safe walks in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, devised specially with children in mind. Packed with fun things to see and do, each route offers a great day out. The routes are circular (with one linear walk) and not too many hills and climbs, and distances between 1.5 and 3.5 miles. Some are suitable for buggies.

There is plenty of variety: with rivers and streams ideal for playing pooh sticks; nature trails to follow; woods to play hide-and-seek in; and wide open spaces in which to use up excess energy. There are also many exciting places to discover, including the Uffington White Horse, Wayland's Smithy burial chamber on the Ridgeway and the ancient King's Men stone circle at Rollright.

Each walk includes information to get to the start, distance and estimated time, terrain, and a panel listing fun things to see and do. Each walk features places for refreshments in recommended cafes or family friendly pubs, or alternatively suggestions for picnic places are given. There are sketch maps to support the route finding instructions which are given in numbered paragraphs corresponding to numbers on the map. Ordnance Survey map references are also provided.
