Turweston Walk

Difficulty: Easy
Distance: 2.5 miles / 4.0 km

A walk out of town into Turweston and back by the river.


  • Start by the Bell and Greyhound pubs on the High Street in Brackley
  • Walk north along the High Street, heading towards the BP garage, but turn right at the roundabout and head down the hill towards Turweston
  • There is a path for part of the way but then the path ends so take care walking on the road. Cross the bridge, over the A43, and continue along until you get to Turweston
  • Walk up the hill, with the Stratton Arms on your right
  • At the top of the hill take the right at the fork and head past the Church
  • The road will bear round to the left, instead take the lane straight ahead and continue onto the path at the end
  • Follow the path slightly down hill and under the flyover and then over the bridge over the river, past the old viaduct
  • Keep following the path and it will end in Old Town. Follow the road round to the right, before turning left and following the path alongside St Peter’s Church
  • Continue straight out of the Church gates and walk back up hill, returning to the starting point at the Bell and Greyhound pubs
