Named discs with oak treeWychwood Way

60 km / 37 miles

This circular walk goes around the heart of the ancient forest of Wychwood. From Woodstock the route passes through Stonesfield, Chadlington, Ascott-under-Wychwood, Leafield, Ramsden, North Leigh, East End and Combe to return to the start. The Way goes through Blenheim Park (a World Heritage Site), and also uses the Roman Road of Akeman Street and the ancient Saltway. It is partly coincident with the Oxfordshire Way.

Blenheim Palace near Oxford was inscribed as a World Heritage Site in 1987 for its architectural importance, as the design and building of the palace between 1705 and 1722 represented the beginning of a new style of architecture and for its landscaped park designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown which is considered as 'a naturalistic Versailles'.
