Walk 1 – Oxford Canal Circuit

This walk takes approx 1 hour to complete.

Starting from Main Street (outside St James the Great Church), vear left onto Fenny Compton Road. Follow the road, passing a farm on your left, continuing until you come to a stream running under the road – on some occasions over the road!

You have now left Oxfordshire and are in Warwickshire. Carry on up the hill to the railway bridge, walking over the bridge and carrying along the road until you see a public sign on the right “Public Footpath”. Ths path will lead you to a railway crossing. This is a main line, so be very careful when crossing, especially with children and animals.

Once over, follow the path to the canal bridge, walk over, and here you will find Wormleighton reservoir – a lovely spot and great for birdlife!

There is a small sign to the towpath, which takes you along by the canal. You can return to the village via Boddington Road or carry on along the towpath until you pass under Appletree Road. Walk back over the canal bridge, up to the road and back into the village past the Playing Field on your left.
