This walk starts from the pretty village of Asthall near Burford and follows the route of the River Windrush. The route takes us west to Widford where we cross the river for the first time and then head back east along through Swinbrook. The route continues along the line of the river to cross back across the river again at Worsham and our return to Asthall.
We meet on the tree lined avenue on the approach to the manor just outside the start of the village. As you approach the village of Asthall down a single track road, the road goes to the left at a junction down a tree lined avenue along which there is plenty of space to park along the side of the road that isn't surfaced. The area is better shown in this Map Link
We start the walk at 10AM sharp. (Please ensure you're at the start point at least 10 mins beforehand).

For lunch afterwards, we will visiting a local pub, possibly the Maytime Inn (tbc). Please note this is at the higher end of our budget range (2 courses for £15.95) so bear this mind when replying.
If you would like to go to lunch, please reply to the "Reply below using the Reply button if you would like a place for lunch --------v" Post below.
If I don't see a request I will assume "No" for lunch.
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 and from which general part of Oxford and surrounding villages you would like to get picked up. There is sometimes a better chance of being picked up from one of the Park & Rides as people use the ring road en-route. There are some guidance notes on our message boards here.
Please ask for a lift ASAP even if your on the waiting list when you do so as the list is constantly changing.
We would welcome a donation of around £1 towards ongoing overhead costs associated with the Meetup service and ancillary costs.
For new members or walkers, please read the Walkers Guide thread in the forum.
The number of the OSW group's mobile is [masked] for notification of delay or cancellation, or help with directions if lost. Details on use can be found on our message board.
