    This is a fantastic dog walking area. It can be accessed from St Mary's Church, as stated here, or Hampton Poyle, or Thrupp. There are meadows, woods, intersecting paths, and the river.

    You won't meet a more grumpy farmer than on this walk. Large number of stiles on his farm have "chicken wire" across them making it impossible for dogs to pass through. Clearly doing his best to prevent dog walkers using public footpaths.
