Around the Plough

Back to Guided Walks page

This walk in the ancient Wychwood Forest leaves Finstock passing a holy well on the way towards historic Wilcote Manor. The return route is along the Evenlode via Stonesfield and the Oxfordshire Way. Lunch at The Plough after the walk.

This is a fairly gentle walk and gives nice views of the Evenlode Valley but also passes through wooded areas. May be muddy after prolonged rainfall. Lunch orders will be taken at the start of the walk. PLEASE NOTE THE DISTANCE HAS NOW BEEN SHORTENED AS SOME PARTS HAVE BECOME DIFFICULT FOLLOWING THE HEAVY RAIN. UNFORTUNATELY THE PLOUGH WILL BE CLOSED. THE NEAREST PUB IS A SHORT CAR DRIVE AWAY.


This walk is organised by Cotswold Voluntary Wardens, the voluntary arm of the Cotswolds Conservation Board. These walks offer an interesting and often entertaining way of exploring our wonderful Cotswold countryside and landscape. All walks by the Voluntary Wardens are FREE OF CHARGE however donations are welcome and help us to take care of the countryside.

PLEASE: always remember to wear appropriate footwear because some walks may be steep and muddy in places. Dogs are not allowed on walks, except guide dogs and hearing dogs. It is advisable to check the website or call the Cotswolds Conservation Board (01451 862000) beforehand for details of any changes, particularly during bad weather.
