Starting in the pleasant village of KIngham this walk focuses on the River Evenlode which inspired two writers in the early 20th Century. Also there is the opportunity to visit a church which features in Simon Jenkins' book England's 1000 Best Churches. Lunch options in nearby Chipping Norton.

If there has been excessive rainfall parts of this walk will be boggy
