Meeting point: Parking on the single yellow lines on Marsh Road isn’t restricted on Sundays. There’s also some street parking on the surrounding roads. The number 5 bus from Oxford city centre stops near the end of Marsh Road.

We’ll follow a somewhat urban route out towards Horspath, then climb up into Shotover Country Park before descending down Old Road and through Lye Valley to return to Marsh Road. This will potentially be quite muddy in places, so walking boots are recommended. We can finish up with a drink in the Marsh Harrier, and potentially lunch there or at one of the other pubs on Cowley Road. Pub stop at the end.
