Ouse Valley Walk

21 km / 13 miles

Now incorporated in the Ouse Valley Way, the Walk is approximately 13 miles long. It follows the original towpath of the now disused Buckingham Canal out to Thornton, a distance of approximately 4 miles. It then follows footpaths through the attractive villages of Beachampton and Calverton before reaching the Milton Keynes riverside walk, the Grand Union Canal and the North Bucks Way.
