Oxfordshire's Hidden Valley

With stunning countryside all around, we encircle the beautiful Heyford Valley with remarkable views from a lesser appreciated part of the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. It's one of those places you just don't appreciate, until you investigate on foot...

One of it's profound little secrets, The Steeple Aston Eyecatcher was designed around 1740 by William Kent and is one of the earliest examples of a sham ruin. It was designed to be viewed from Rousham Park and gives meaning to Horace Walpole's words about Kent 'He leaped the fence and saw that all nature was a garden.'

The Details:

  • 9:45am meet, prompt 10am start.
  • Lower Heyford Train Station, OX6 8UL.
  • Approximately 10miles.
  • Expected duration 5+hours.
  • Leader: Sharon meet our leaders

Important info:

  • A WHATSAPP group will be created to share info and photos on the day, so once signed up, please send an email to grant permission to be added to:
  • Remember waterproofs, walking boots/shoes and a packed lunch & water.
  • Dogs are welcome, but are entirely the owner's responsibility and must have a lead and be under close control at all times.
  • If encountering livestock do not walk too close or get between a cow and calf. If threatened, let go of your dog so it can escape and reduce the risk to yourself.
  • Please keep to the indicated public rights of way and respect the landowner’s property at all times.
  • There are often styles to negotiate on this type of walk.
  • Countryside walking can often include hills and uneven terrain. Our group ethos is to support everyone in group to achieve their maximum potential in terms of completing the route. As such, we endeavour to walk at a pace all participants are comfortable with. We apologise if this causes any frustration to fitter walkers.
  • Please consult your doctor if you are at all worried about your fitness and ability to take part.
