d'Arcy Dalton Way

107 km / 66 miles

Glos, Oxon, Warks
The Way, devised with involvement from the CPRE to mark the Oxford Fieldpaths Society Diamond Jubilee, is named after the late Col. W. P. d'Arcy Dalton who worked for over half a century to preserve rights of way in Oxfordshire. It links four major paths that cross Oxfordshire: Oxford Canal Walk, Oxfordshire Way, Thames Path and Ridgeway, following roughly the western boundary of Oxfordshire in unspoilt countryside.

The Way takes a meandering route, first crossing ironstone hills to Epwell and Hook Norton, and then following footpaths and tracks across the limestone uplands of the eastern Cotswolds via Great and Little Rollright, Churchill, Fifield, Great Barrington and Holwell.

The River Thames is crossed at Radcot Bridge and the Way continues across the flatter farmland of the vale of the White Horse, finally climbing to the crest of the chalk ridge of the Oxfordshire Downs, along which the Ridgeway runs. The guidebook includes eight circular walks.
