The Oxford Canal Walk

The Oxford Canal Walk is a long distance walk along the Oxford Canal from Coventry to Oxford.

This definitely isn’t taxing, but the 123 km or so it covers means that you’ll need a few days to walk the lot!

More information can be found for the whole route at the following link – Oxford Canal Walk– or for our section from Banbury to Lower Heyford.
