A lovely country walk from Tackley, circling a particularly beautiful area surrounding this picturesque village. On footpaths and bridleways and country lanes, woodland is a predominant feature, either in the distance or on the actual route, the magical atmosphere reminiscent of fairy stories, the eerie stillness, a source of peace and quietness. Mature trees spread their branches to give shelter or shade on much of this walk, which is a delight from beginning to end. The charming Tackley Village Green is a perfect setting, with large houses and small cottages of local stone scattered round it, making an appealing picture-book scene. Sunday morning walk.
Fascinating Fact....This delightful walk was last walked by the group in January 2011 !

We like to reduce the impact on the areas we visit and its sometimes difficult to find places with adequate parking, so we encourage lift shares with our regular drivers.
If you need a lift, please post below indicating that you'd like a lift.
There's some comprehensive notes on Car Shares on our message board.
We would welcome a donation of around £1 towards ongoing overhead costs associated with the Meetup service and ancillary costs. We would be grateful if this was done before the start of the walk.
For new members or walkers, please read the Walkers Guide thread in the forum.
My mobile number will be added on the event here nearer the time to notify me on of delay or cancellation, or help with directions if lost.
