Bodicote - North Newington - Broughton - Bloxham - Bodicote

A very pleasant walk, rich in history, taking in four villages and a magnificent castle, dating back to the 14th Century, lived in by Lord Saye and Sele and open to visitors on certain days. The public is always welcome to walk around the grounds. The churches are all worth a visit, Bloxham Church being famous for its length of spire and its beauty. The walk starts on the Salt Way: already ancient when the Romans conquered Britain, it was the main route from Droitwich to London and used for tranporting salt to the South East. Some uphill climbs reward your efforts with wonderful views.

I did this walk on Sunday 2nd July 2017, leading a group of eleven ramblers from Hinckley, Leics, and everyone enjoyed it very much. The footpath between waypoints five and eight was invisible beneath the wheat so, rather than trample down the crops, we followed a clear diversion around the edge of the fields rejoining the route about halfway between waypoints eight and nine. Everyone enjoyed a welcome lunchtime beer at The Joiners Arms in Bloxham, before a relatively easy afternoon walk back to our cars in Bodicote. According to various gps devices we walked ten miles in total, seven to the pub and three afterwards. All in all, a good day out.

Superb walk. Food at The Saye & Sele Arms at Broughton is well worth a visit.
