The Abingdon Waterways Walk
If you prefer to combine a bit of history with a lot of walking the Abingdon Waterways Walk makes a great day out. It’s an 8 mile circular walk taking in the heart of Abingdon’s medieval town centre, the charms of the villages of Drayton and Sutton Courtenay, and parts of the Thames Path. Start around mid morning at the free car park at Culham Lock OX14 4NE and you will be in Abingdon-on-Thames just in time to fuel your body with a lunch stop at one of our many pubs and cafes. Hit the trail again to reach the village of Sutton Courtenay just as the mid afternoon sun tells you its time for a pub stop, just leaving you with one or two fields to cross to bring you back to the car. Our illustrated book contains anecdotes about the places you pass on the way and hand drawn maps to make the route finding easy. Buy it at one of our two book shops, Mostly Books or The Bookstore. Price £2.
