A Roman Villa and a River Valley

Back to Guided Walks page

From Stonesfield we walk to the North Leigh Roman Villa where we will stop to explore the villa site and visit the Mosaic Room, open on this date. Our return incudes a gentle meander along the River Evenlode and across the river valley. Please bring light refreshments for our villa stop.

This walk is classed as moderate because of the quite steep ascent on our return to Stonesfield. Members of the Everyone's Evenlode team will joining us to share information about the river, in particular flood mitigation measures.
