From the humped bridge at Twyford Wharf, the first part of this walk is along the beautiful Oxford Canal, as far as Nell Bridge. Just a little road-walking follows, until footpaths over fields and meadows lead to King's Sutton. Touching just part of the village, the route then takes more footpaths through delightful meadows near to the railway line. From the moment you step onto the canal towpath, the blissful solace of nature is striking. Grazing cattle and sheep stare contentedly from their pastures and birdsong is ever-present; flora and fauna is in plentiful supply in this lush world of abundant splendour.
The pretty lockside cottage at Nell Bridge stands as a simple reminder of bygone days, when lock-keepers lived at their working stations. It would be easy to leave the route for a while to explore the village of King's Sutton further, where there are several pubs and a large recreation ground as well as interesting architecture. This is a relaxing walk in beautiful surroundings.
