Clanfield is a very attractive village, with a stream running through its centre beside the main road, spanned in places by stone bridges. Clumps of daffodils line the banks of the stream in the spring.

The walk starts from the church, which dates back to the 12th Century. It follows the stream right through the village before heading across fields to Little Clanfield - as its name implies, a smaller version of Clanfield. There were once two water mills here, although one of them is now a private house.

The rest of the walk remains fairly flat, heading across fields and pleasant Oxfordshire countryside on the edge of the Cotswolds. You are very close to Brize Norton and are likely to see low-flying aircraft. Alvescot, the final place to be visited, is another attractive village, mostly made from Cotswold stone.

There is a choice of excellent pubs to choose from: the Clanfield Tavern, at the start and end of the walk and The Plough at Alvescot, which is very popular for its home-cooked food.

Completed this walk today 21 June 2020, it had rained for 2 days before we completed the walk & yet the going under foot was very firm & not at all greasy. Nice walk very dog friendly & extremely easy to follow. A couple of points to note: The first turning on the right is just over the bridge & is minus a finger post. The second point, this walk was much further than the stated 6. 2 miles more like 7 1/2 miles. An enjoyable walk & one we might do again.
