Detailed description

The Glyme Valley Way

As a part of the celebrations for Oxfordshire's 1000th birthday, BBC Oxford and our Countryside Service are demonstrating the rich history and value of the county's countryside by leaving the legacy of a signposted walking route along the River Glyme, between Chipping Norton and Woodstock.

Discovering Oxfordshire's history

The 16-mile route follows the river as it passes many key historical sites including two Capability Brown parklands, deserted villages, a Roman road, water meadows, waterfalls, and a 12th century church.
