The Ridgeway around Lewknor
Introduction to Walk 1140

Photo from the walk - The Ridgeway around Lewknor

County/Area - Oxfordshire

Author - Donald Morton

Length - 13.0 miles / 21.1 km

Ascent - 400 feet / 121 metres

Grade - moderate

This is a very flat walk through six narrow Chiltern parishes, narrow and long historically to incorporate the varying assets from the meadowlands, and arable lands up to the woods providing pannage for the pigs and firewood and coppicing. The walk stays on the lower levels and does not climb into the woods but these provide the scenery on one side while on the other are wide prospects over Oxfordshire. There is a pub in the start village and Crowell.
