Starting form the lovely Northants village of Middleton Cheney, this walk takes field-paths through marvellous countryside to visit Chacombe. Both villages are quite large and historically interesting with beautiful churches dating back to the 14th Century, though quite different in appearance. Midldleton Cheney Church has a tall perpendicular spire that rises 150ft and is a landmark for miles around, whilst Chacombe Church, standing in a pleasant setting among trees, has a low bell tower, the bells of which were cast in Chacombe's own but now defunct Henry Bagley Foundry. Middleton Cheney Church has many glorious windows and there are graves near the west door of Roundheads killed at the Battle of Middleton in 1643. In the churchyard is the large crypt of the Horton family of Middleton Cheney Manor, the last surviving member being Mary, who bequeathed to Banbury its Horton Hospital.
