A very attractive walk around the countryside of Bodicote, much of it on good surfaces and hard tracks, making it ideal for winter or wet-weather conditions. Amongst the points of interest along the way are Bodicote Mill, near the beginning of the route and Lower Grove Mill at the end of it. The remains of the windmill on the Grove Road awaits restoration.

The delightful hamlet or village of Milton has a public house which is actually older than the church it stands next to, retaining some structural parts and details dating back to the 16th and 17th Centuries. The pretty cottages and houses are a joy and add another element of interest to the walker, before the disused railway embankment takes the tree-lined route away again, towards Adderbury, then Bodicote.

There are plenty of good views and a chance for the birdwatcher to be well-rewarded in quiet, pleasant rural surrounds.

A very enjoyable walk but not all as planned on this guide. Most stiles now replaced with gates and some gates now missing . All directions 9-11 are now inapplicable. The railway embankment is overgrown and inaccessible, no gate and barbed wire fence. 9.Go back under the bridge and into field.Turn right, and walk along edge of field to exit by a corner stile. 10. Follow path ahead running parallel to the disused railway to the end of the field. 11. Turn left at the corner and then right to the stile to rejoin directions at 12. At 13. there is no stile into the meadow. Walk on left hand edge of field to exit at corner by the farm. Walk between farm and a new house to find a gate on the left between wooden fences signed for Bloxham Grove which will bring you to the footbridge in 13.
