About this walk

The Piddington Circular Walk is an attractive rural route taking in Muswell Hill, the highest viewpoint in the southern half of Cherwell District. It starts from the village hall where there is usually ample parking (please see ‘By Car’ instructions below). With the co-operation of the landowners, all of the stiles on the route were replaced by gates in 2011, except for at point 7.

The circular walk is clearly described and waymarked but it helps to follow the information in this leaflet as you go. Please note changes can occur so before setting out on your walk, check on Cherwell District Council’s walks pages for updates in the leaflet text or along the route - The walk is explained and signed in a clockwise direction but once you have familiarised yourself with the route, you can walk it either way.

    Various of the car park suggestions mentioned don't seem to be usable - the village hall had a shut gate and didnt seem friendly to casual parkers. A brochure from cherwell council at Link → mentions "Widnell Park", but that has recently (2012 says the village website), had its car park closed. There are a few spots near the church, however.

    One of the fields we walked through had a group of bullocks in it, which seemed quite keen on coming over en-mass to say hello (we scooted to the gate!). Other than that its a lovely walk.

    Great walk, I parked in the Village Hall and as I walked up the hill the clouds cleared. The bullocks were in the field as I came down so I skirted around into the adjacent field. Will definitely return.
