There are three Tysoes; this walk starts from the middle one by the church, which dates from Norman times. It is constructed from the warm, brown local stone, as are so many of the older buildings in this and many other villages in the area. The walk leaves the village in what is known as the Vale of the White Horse and takes field-paths through wonderful Warwickshire countryside to reach Oxhill. This is a small, very attractive village of the same ruddy brown stone that is characteristic of these parts and with a beautiful church that looks more than ample for the amount of homes it serves.

The route circles round to join a bridleway and leaves it abruptly to follow a footpath when two thirds of the way over a field, to change direction again. Continuing on field-paths, the surrounding landscape mostly agricultural, with the vast woodland area of Sun Rising and Edge Hill Coverts in the distance. Middle Tysoe is re-entered, with a fair distance to go before reaching the church, which enables the onlooker to enjoy the pretty aspects of this large and interesting village.

Something amiss here, as if the official path has been replaced by a permissive one, access should not be by having to climb a gate, and we wonder if our walking friend was on the correct path. Any loss of PRW should be reported to local authority. There is no guarantee on PH opening times. Check beforehand.

Not sure I would recommend this walk. The first field you cross is padlocked so you have to either climb the gate or fence. Overgrown by the sewage works and then a lot of the rest of the walk is a little unclear. Permissive paths replace official path and was a little uninspiring. Maybe it needs to be walked more to make it more obvious. Plus the pub in Oxhill closed on a Monday lunchtime - maybe that why we didn't enjoy it so much.
