Walking in the Lower Windrush Valley

Our colourful Walks and Leisure leaflet (pdf format, 1Mb) includes a map of footpaths and bridleways in the Lower Windrush Valley, four walk route descriptions and information on sites of interest in the valley.

The Windrush Path

The northern section from Witney to Hardwick runs alongside the western arm of the River Windrush. The southern section runs from Standlake to Newbridge where it joins up with the National Trails Thames Path.

The path is being developed in stages and is a good example of how the Lower Windrush Valley Project works with mineral companies, planning authorities, landowners and local communities to deliver a range of landscape, wildlife and public access initiatives throughout the valley.

In times of heavy rainfall and possible flooding please check with the project office before you set out to walk the Windrush Path.
