Woodford Walks

There are some wonderful walks in and around Woodford.

Here are some of them, tried and tested by our previous Footpath Warden, Joe Pitt.

Our current footpath warden is Kerry Simmonds, you can contact her at: kerrysimmonds@icloud.com

New at the Daventry Museum

This is a pleasant circular walk of about one and a half hours but watch out for the stiles as some of them are high. The interesting remains of the medieval village can be seen as well as the church.

A Short Walk To The North of Woodford.

This walk should take around 90 minutes via Butterfly Lane or two hours via West Farndon. Start the walk in Lime Avenue, Eydon, near the Royal Oak.

A One Hour Walk To The East of Woodford.

A Ramble taking in the views over the Cherwell valley towards Banbury.

A walk to explore some of Woodford’s railway heritage. One and a half hours or one hour if returning along the Eydon Road.

The Countryside Code

Remember, when you are walking in the fields around Woodford, the land and livestock is our farmers’ livelihood.

Please enjoy the countryside responsibly and follow the Countryside Code.
