Starting at the church in Ufton, the walk soon ventures towards Ufton Wood, thick and silent, before visiting the Stoney Thorpe Estate where there is a large polo ground. The route actually passes playing-fields where there could well be matches taking place. The course of a stream is followed on the way to a Holy Well just outside Southam. Farmland, heath and woodland are encountered on the return journey to Ufton, briefly skirting Harbury before finally following a country lane along Ufton Fields to reach the village, an idyllic setting of attractive dwellings.

Walked today, Feb 4th 2018. The walk: a decent walk, with the added interest of the holy well. Gators are required at this time of year with sections being ankle deep in mud. I am not sure the section of track around the land fill ever dries. Some of the views are very nice and far reaching. The instructions : We felt the inclusion of some distances would be helpful " some distance" is a bit vague, whereas "about 500m" gives a better idea. The section from wp10 needs reworking, the new tree plantation clearly is no longer new, and there is now an enclosed path. Stiles are often metal gates now. Also, i would recommend parking at the nature reserve car park mentioned in waypoint 14, and cutting through the nature reserve on the dog leg of the lane. This would alleviate a frustrating 10 minutes trying to park in already overcrowded street parking. I would recommend this walk for finer summer weather as it was on the whole a decent walk as all of Ron and Jenny's walks that we have done have been.

We attempted this walk in the winter time and found the directions quite difficult to follow. The map was more accurate, but the comments and photos didn't really seem to fit the actual walk. It looked as if the directions were quite out of date - for example a lot of the stiles had been replaced with gates etc. We managed to successfully navigate our way through 2/3 of the route, mostly by using the map. Eventually we ended up spending over an hour trying to navigate out of an area near a landfill site. In the end we had to return to the main road as we couldn't find our way and were afraid of running out of light if we continued. Quite an unpleasant 20 minute walk along a main road to get back to Ufton. We know the area, and are used to following walks, but have never had to abandon one before! Partly due to the winter light, but we feel this walk could benefit from being walked again and the directions clarified and/or updated.
